During this composition reading with the Dover Quartet you can hear how new works are brought forth into the world by Williams composition students. Working with faculty and a guest ensemble whose specialty is the fostering and performing of new works, students get to premiere their pieces while receiving expert feedback.
The Dover Quartet 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. The New Yorker recently dubbed them “the young American string quartet of the moment,” and The Strad raved that the Quartet is “already pulling away from their peers with their exceptional interpretive maturity, tonal refinement and taut ensemble.” In 2013-14, the Quartet became the first ever Quartet-in-Residence for the venerated Curtis Institute of Music.
