Venue, Timing and Cost
Dover Beach is one of the great works for voice and string quartet. It is an early work of the American composer Samuel Barber, setting the English poet Matthew Arnold. Barber looked back on Dover Beach throughout his life with affection, considering it one of his few early works that displayed real maturity. It is played this evening by the dazzling Albion Quartet, (baritone to be confirmed). The Albion Quartet also play Dvorák’s perennially popular ‘American’ quartet, written in 1893 while the composer was Director of the National Conservatory in New York City.
