Strings with wings: Dover Quar­tet

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - James M. Keller

The Dover Quar­tet has been mov­ing at light­ning speed up the ranks of the string-quar­tet world, which tends to­ward se­date­ness. Formed only in 2009, when its mem­bers were all stu­dents at the Cur­tis In­sti­tute of Mu­sic, the group swept top prizes at the 2013 Banff In­ter­na­tional String Quar­tet Com­pe­ti­tion, a de­ci­sive fo­rum for the field, and last fall they were se­lected for the pres­ti­gious Cleve­land Quar­tet Award, given bi­en­ni­ally to honor “a ris­ing young string quar­tet whose artistry demon­strates that it is in the process of es­tab­lish­ing a ma­jor ca­reer.” On Fri­day, March 11, at 7 p.m., the group fig­ures on the se­ries of the Los Alamos Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion at Duane Smith Au­di­to­rium, Los Alamos High School (1300 Di­a­mond Drive). On the pro­gram are Mozart’s Quar­tet in B-f lat ma­jor, K. 458 (the Hunt), David Lud­wig’s Pale Blue Dot (a mu­sico- as­tro­nom­i­cal med­i­ta­tion), and Beethoven’s Quar­tet in F ma­jor, Op. 59, No. 1 (the first Razu­movsky). Tick­ets ($30) are avail­able through Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe.org).
