Next week, Edgar Meyer launches a coast-to-coast national tour with the Dover Quartet with a program highlighted by Edgar’s own Quintet for Strings (originally composed for the Emerson Quartet).
Edgar and the Dovers set out from Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center on October 21, followed by Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh on October 23. On the West Coast, they begin in Tucson, Arizona at the Leo Rich Theatre on October 26, followed by Portland, Oregon’s Chamber Music Northwest on October 28.
They conclude in San Francisco on October 30 at Herbst Theatre with an evening concert that is preceded by a solo family recital by Edgar at the same theatre in the morning. In addition to joining the Dover Quartet for his own quintet, Edgar can be heard in Rossini’s Duo for Bass and Cello with cellist Camden Shaw.
