A thrilling collaboration!

About the Artists

A cherished soloist and chamber musician who has toured and recorded with Dawn Upshaw and Placido Domingo, Bridget Kibbey brings virtuosic brilliance and musical charisma to all she plays.  As the New York Times wrote: “Kibbey made it seem as though her instrument had been waiting all its life to explode with the gorgeous colors and energetic figures she was getting from it.”

 The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. Recently named the Cleveland Quartet Award winner, and awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world.

But the surprise of the program came at the start, when Ms. Kibbey played her own transcription of Bach’s dark and restless Toccata and Fugue in D minor for Organ. Say again? This mighty organ piece played on a harp? It was remarkable....the gossamer colorings and improvisatory fervor of Ms. Kibbey’s account hooked me.

The Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet — they’re that good. Expert musicianship, razor-sharp ensemble, deep musical feeling and a palpable commitment to communication made their performances satisfying on many levels.
