About Dover Quartet
Since their 2013 – 14 Ernst Stiefel String Quartet Residency at Caramoor, the Dover Quartet have graduated from a young quartet into one of the most sought-after ensembles. Winners of the Cleveland Quartet Award and recipients of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, they have been lauded for their “expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, deep musical feeling, and a palpable commitment to communication” (Chicago Tribune). “Charismatic, full-voiced” (The New York Times) bass-baritone Davóne Tines joins the Quartet for Barber’s Dover Beach and Caroline Shaw’s By and By.
“… the Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet — they’re that good.” — The Chicago Tribune
“[Davóne Tines] is a singer of immense power and fervor.” — Los Angeles Times
