Dover Quartet

HAYDN String Quartet in C major, Op. 76, No. 3, Emperor
AMY BEACH Quartet for Strings (in one movement), Op. 89
MENDELSSOHN String Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 44, No. 3

After its stunning online performance during the 2020–21 season, the increasingly in-demand Dover Quartet visits for its in-person Cal Performances debut. Reviews for that presentation were effusive—“extraordinary…across the program’s varied repertoire, this cohesive and eloquent quartet found depth, color, lucidity, power, and grace in everything they played” (San Francisco Classical Voice)—and the program this time is equally exciting. Haydn’s elegant Emperor Quartet and Mendelssohn’s masterful third quartet from his Op. 44 set bookend Amy Beach’s 1929 quartet, a lean, lyrical work built on Alaskan Inuit melodies.
