The new season begins with a hot ticket - "the young American string quartet of the moment" (New Yorker). The "must hear" Dover Quartet (Washington Post) has won every conceivable quartet prize and performed over 120 performances around the world in the past year alone. This "excellent" foursome (New York Times) offers Beethoven's classic String Quartet, op. 18, no. 1, Shostakovich's searing Quartet No. 2, and the New York premiere of Plan & Elevation by youngest-ever Pulitzer prizewinner Caroline Shaw, based on the gardens at Dumbarton Oaks.
