Description

The Dover Quartet, (violinists Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violist Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt, and cellist Camden Shaw), hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “the next Guarneri Quartet”, brings us a fascinating program entitled Novelty Through Revisitation. The program begins  with Zemlinsky’s Quartet No. 1 in A major, one of the most important works for string quartet between Brahms and the Second Viennese School, followed by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Tanya León’s,  Afro-Cuban inspired work, Quarteto No. 2, and finishing with the Brahms Quartet in A minor, Opus 51, No. 2, with its final movement inspired by Hungarian folk dance.
