Coming together for a performance of three legendary pieces written for string octet, the Dover and Escher string quartets will light up our stage with their shared enthusiasm and superb mastery. The Dover rocketed to stardom since sweeping the Banff Competition in 2013, and the Escher boasts the coveted Season Artist of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. The program includes works by Shostakovich, Mendelssohn, and Enescu.
