The New Yorker recently dubbed the Dover Quartet as “the young American string quartet of the moment.” The group catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet competition, becoming one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. They return to the ArtPower stage with Avi Avital, one of the world’s most exciting and adventurous musicians. Acknowledged by the New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility,” Avital is the first-ever mandolin player to receive a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Instrumental Soloist category.
