Gogue Preforming Arts Center Logo
Cherished harpist Bridget Kibbey and the world-renowned Dover Quartet are uniting for the first time in a celebration of the “father” of all composers, J.S. Bach. The unprecedented performance features a selection of Bach’s greatest works in the hands of some of today’s most brilliant musical artists. From the “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” to the Aria and Three Variations from the Goldberg Variations; from The Art of the Fugue to “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3,” Kibbey and the Dover Quartet will dazzle and captivate the audience.An acclaimed soloist and chamber musician who has toured and recorded with Dawn Upshaw and Placido Domingo, Kibbey brings virtuosic brilliance and musical charisma to all she plays. As The New York Times wrote, “[She makes] it seem as though her instrument [has] been waiting all its life to explode with the gorgeous colors and energetic figures she was getting from it.”

Kibbey pairs with the phenomenal Dover Quartet, praised by Strad for “their exceptional interpretative maturity, tonal refinement, and taut ensemble.” The quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep at the 2013 Banff Competition, at which they won every prize. Their world-class collaborations include performances with pianists Anne-Marie McDermott, Emanuel Ax, Marc-André Hamelin, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Peter Serkin, and Jon Kimura Parker; violists Roberto Díaz and Cynthia Phelps; bassist Edgar Meyer; and the Pacifica and Escher quartets.

All four quartet members are consummate solo artists: first violinist Joel Link took top prize at the Menuhin Competition; violinist Bryan Lee and violist Milena Pajaro van de Stadt have appeared as soloists with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Tokyo Philharmonic, respectively; and cellist Camden Shaw released a solo album debut on the Unipheye Music label.
