Young Artist in Residence: The Dover Quartet
Considered one of the most remarkably talented string quartets ever to emerge at such a young age, the Dover Quartet swept the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, winning the Grand Prize as well as all three Special Prizes: the R.S. Williams & Sons Haydn Prize for the best performance of Haydn, the Szekely Prize for the best performance of Schubert, and the Canadian Commission Prize for the best performance of a newly commissioned work.
If that's not enough recognition, the Quartet has been named the first Quartet-in-Residence at the venerated Curtis Institute of Music as well as the Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-In-Residence at the Caramoor Festival for the 2013-14 season.
The Grand Prize-winner of the 2010 Fischoff Competition, the Dover Quartet formed at Curtis in 2008, when its members were just 19 years old.
