Two of the hottest chamber music groups in America today, the Kennedy Center’s quartet-in-residence, the Dover Quartet, and the Escher Quartet share the stage for a rare all-octet program. The Escher is “one of the major string quartets playing today” (Bachtrack), and the Dover is “the young American string quartet of the moment” (The New Yorker). Both are winners of the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant and have turned heads in the chamber music field, and now join forces to show off their distinct styles and explore the depths of music composed for octets. The program includes three works for string octet, each composed by a teenaged musical prodigy.

SHOSTAKOVICH Two Pieces for String Octet, Op. 11
