WILLIAMSTOWN, MA- The Dover Quartet, a talented young chamber ensemble, will perform at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Tuesday, August 20, at 8 pm. This will be the third concert in the Clark’s annual chamber music series, which showcases some of the nation’s best chamber ensembles.

The Dover Quartet formed at the Curtis Institute of Music in 2008, when most of its members were just 19 years old. They gained a reputation for a level of professionalism and musical subtlety that many more experienced ensembles struggle to capture.

The quartet will perform three pieces: Beethoven’s Quartet in E minor, Opus 59, No. 2; Brahms’ Quartet in A minor, Opus 51, No. 2; and Stephen Dankner’s “De Profundis.” Dankner, a local composer, composed “De Profundis” in honor of Williams College Professor of Music Emeritus Irwin Shainman.
