Formed at the Curtis Institute of Music, the members of the Dover Quartet count among their mentors some of the greatest musicians of our time, and the ensemble’s performances continue to combine the hallowed standards of string playing’s golden age with adventurous programming and appealing personal presence. Their program for CMS shows all their facets, and in addition, we are thrilled to present bassist Edgar Meyer in his own bass quintet, which received its first performance for CMS in 1996.
