We welcome the return of the excellent young Dover Quartet, lauded by The New Yorker as both “exciting and accomplished.”  The Wall Street Journal has described their playing as “masterly, nuanced” with “gutsy and earthy sound,” while the Santa Fe New Mexican has said that to hear them is to be in “string quartet nirvana.” 

The quartet was nominated for the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance for their recording of Robert Schumann’s string quartets.

The Dover Quartet has released three albums on Cedille Records: Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart, Voices of Defiance, and Beethoven Complete String Quartets, Volume 1 – The Opus 18 Quartets.
