Portland Ovations Presents The Dover Quartet

Portland Ovations Presents The Dover Quartet
Thursday, December 6 at 7:30 pm
Hannaford Hall, Portland

Maine Public is the media sponsor of Portland Ovations Classical Series including a performance by The Dover Quartet, live at Hannaford Hall on the University of Southern Maine Portland campus, on Thursday evening, December 6.

The Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition, where they were lauded for their "exceptional level of maturity, poise and artistry." Other achievements quickly amassed in their "practically meteoric" ascent (Strings) include winning the Cleveland Quartet Award as well as the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant. Formed at the Curtis Institute of Music only a decade ago, the quartet has built up an enviable résumé and reputation through rigorous touring: more than 100 concerts around North America and Europe in the last year alone. Collaborations with superlative artists like Marc-André Hamelin, Peter Serkin, and the Escher Quartet cement Dover’s place as "the young American string quartet of the moment" (The New Yorker). Program to include works by Tchaikovsky, Mason Bates, and Dvořák.
