The phenomenal Dover Quartet is joined by Norway’s foremost pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, who gave a masterful recital in Koerner Hall in January 2023.
Named one of the greatest string quartets of the last 100 years by BBC Music Magazine, the Grammy Award nominated Dover Quartet’s rise from up-and-coming young ensemble who swept all the prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and natural phrasing, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (The New Yorker). As Strad observes, “With their exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement, and taut ensemble,” the Dover Quartet is “pulling away from their peers.”
Internationally acclaimed pianist and chamber musician Leif Ove Andsnes has been nominated for 11 Grammy Awards and awarded many international prizes, including six Gramophone Awards. An inductee in the Gramophone Hall of Fame and recipient of Norway’s distinguished honour, Commander of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav, as well as the prestigious Peer Gynt Prize, The New York Times calls him “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight.”
