An Evening with the Dover Quartet

Concert Sponsor: Anonymous Friend of CMNW

The sensational Dover Quartet is joined by percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum for this eclectic evening of music. From string quartets by Haydn and Borodin to Andy Akiho’s LIgNEouS Suite for marimba and string quartet,  these masterful young musicians will astound audiences!

The Dover Quartet’s rise from being an up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). Catapulted to prominence after sweeping the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the group has become a major presence on the international scene. 

The young American string quartet of the moment.

We have set out to show the world what the life of a traveling string quartet is really like! There are a lot of misconceptions about what “classical music” is, and we want to share this amazing art form with as many people as we can!

Percussion

Praised for his “excellent” and “precisely attuned” performances by the New York Times, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. He made his Kennedy Center debut in 2009 and later that year garnered a special prize created for him at the Salzburg International Marimba Competition.

Mr. Rosenbaum joined the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program in 2012 as only the second percussionist they have selected in their history. He has appeared at the Bay Chamber, Bridgehampton,  Chamber Music Northwest, Music@Menlo, Norfolk, and Yellow Barn festivals.
