Tune in on April 28 at 3 PM (ET) for a wonderful program of works by Turina, Dohnanyi, and Brahms

We're coming to you LIVE from Toronto, Canada, for a special concert presented by The Royal Conservatory with VC Artist Dover Quartet with Pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.

A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Rice University Shepherd School of Music, the Dover Quartet is a former top prize winner at the Fischoff, Wigmore Hall and Banff International String Quartet Competitions — and a recipient of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, the Lincoln Center Hunt Family Prize and an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Comprising violinists Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violist Julianne Lee, and cellist Camden Shaw, the quartet was dubbed by the New Yorker as “the young American string quartet of the moment.”

Nominated for 11 Grammy awards and winner of 6 Gramophone Awards, Norwegian pianist and chamber musician Leif Ove Andsnes was an inductee in the Gramophone Hall of Fame and recipient of Norway’s distinguished honor, Commander of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav. The New York Times describes him as “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight."
