Episode 7 – Dover Quartet / Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart
The latest episode of Cedille’s Classical Chicago podcast features an interview with Joel Link and Milena Pajaro van de Stadt from the Dover Quartet, whose debut album Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart will be released on Cedille Records on October 14.
Hailed as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (The New Yorker), the Dover Quartet makes its recording debut with an all-Mozart album on Cedille Records honoring the soaring young ensemble’s illustrious teachers and coaches, the Guarneri Quartet. Tribute: Dover Quartet Plays Mozart recalls the Guarneri’s own all-Mozart debut album on RCA Red Seal 50 years ago (1966), which featured Mozart’s final two string quartets — in B-Flat, K. 589, and F, K. 590. The Dover’s album on Cedille adds Mozart’s Quintet in C Minor, K. 406, performed with none other than Michael Tree, the Guarneri’s founding violist and one of the Dover’s most valued mentors.
On this episode of Classical Chicago, Cedille President Jim Ginsburg talks with celebrated baritone Will Liverman about his experience recording Cedille’s latest release, Show Me The Way. The album features a collection of songs curated by Will Liverman and longtime recital partner Jonathan King and celebrates American female composers from 20th century.
