The Festival’s Quartet in Residence opens the season with Dover Plays (Amy) Beach at the Beach along with Haydn and Mendelssohn. Named one of the greatest string quartets of the last 100 years by BBC Music Magazine, the Grammy® nominated Dover Quartet has followed a “practically meteoric” (Strings) trajectory to become one of the most in-demand chamber ensembles in the world.
In addition to its faculty role as the Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, the Dover Quartet holds residencies with the Kennedy Center, Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Artosphere, and the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival.
