About the Artists
Hailed as “the young American string quartet of the moment,” (New Yorker), the Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom in 2013, following a stunning sweep of all prizes at the Banff Competition and has since become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. In addition to its faculty role as the inaugural Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, the Dover Quartet holds residencies with the Kennedy Center, Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Artosphere, the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, and Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York. The quartet was nominated for the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance for their recording of Robert Schumann’s string quartets. Among the group’s honors are the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, and Lincoln Center’s Hunt Family Award. The Dover Quartet has also won top prizes at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition and the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.
The Dover Quartet’s residency at the Curtis Institute of Music integrates teaching and mentorship, a robust international performance career, and a cutting-edge digital presence. The Quartet is also dedicated to sharing its music with under-served communities and is actively involved with Music for Food, an initiative enabling musicians to raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger.
Heralded as a “Singer of immense power and fervor” and “[one] of the most powerful voices of our time” by the Los Angeles Times, and a “… charismatic, full-voiced bass-baritone …” by the New York Times, Davóne Tines is building an international career commanding a broad spectrum of opera and concert performance. He is a graduate of Harvard University and The Juilliard School, a 2018 Lincoln Center Emerging Artists Award honoree and American Modern Opera Company founding member. He has made his mark in opera and concert performances – from works by Handel, Beethoven, and Verdi to world premieres by Saariaho and Adams.
