Venue: Samueli Theater Tickets start at $29.00


The young players of the Dover Quartet, all still in their twenties and mentored by some of the best musicians in the business, soared to international celebrity following a stunning victory at the renowned 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition – an earlier launch pad to fame for the St. Lawrence String Quartet. In a stylistically wide-ranging Center debut program, the Dover Quartet plays a treasure of the 20th century chamber music repertoire, French composer Henri Dutilleux’s haunting Ainsi la nuit – another Center premiere performance.
