Beethoven: String Quartet in A Minor, Op. 132

A Beethoven Quartet Society was established in London in 1845, just 18 years after the composer’s death. Its concerts took place at the aptly named Beethoven Rooms in Harley Street. Given under the title ‘Honour to Beethoven,’ they included the first public cycle of the complete Beethoven quartets. The Dover Quartet showcases the full stylistic evolution of those masterful works, by including one first-class, fully representative piece each from his early, middle and late periods. You’ll hear clearly how he first followed the models established by Haydn and Mozart, then set off in his own, imaginative directions, and finally forecast the future of music through the visionary works that concluded his composing career. Since winning all four prizes at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet has performed more than 100 concerts a year in locations spanning four continents. The ensemble has accumulated one milestone achievement after another: competition wins, invitations to major festivals and concert series. Beginning with the 2015/16 season, the Dover occupies the prestigious position of Faculty Quartet-in-Residence at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Their Beethoven ‘summary’ concert will surely prove to be a highlight of the Festival.
