Sunday, October 7 The award-winning young Dover Quartet, which often balances its pyrotechnic style with programs centered around insightful social commentary, will perform a program they're calling "Made in America" which features quartets begun in America by Britten, Bartok and Dvorak.

The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. Recently named the Cleveland Quartet Award winner, and awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world.

The Quartet's rise from up-and-coming young ensemble 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" (New Yorker). The Quartet serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.

Hailed as "the next Guarneri Quartet" (Chicago Tribune), the Dover Quartet draws from the lineage of that distinguished ensemble, as well that of the Cleveland and Vermeer Quartets; its members studied at the Curtis Institute of Music and Rice University's Shepherd School of Music. The Dover Quartet is dedicated to sharing its music with under-served communities and is actively involved with Music for Food, an initiative enabling musicians to raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger.

BRITTEN: Quartet No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25
BARTOK: Quartet No. 3
DVO?AK: Quartet in A flat Major, Op. 105
