Members of the Guarneri Quartet Performances by the Dover Quartet Hosted by Astrid Schween, cellist of Juilliard Quartet The string quartet is perhaps the most defining and personal form of expression for composers, couching their deeply confessional utterances within the apparent simplicity of its instrumentation. Members of the Guarneri Quartet discuss their music making and legacy of coaxing these utterances to the surface, while the Dover Quartet performs music by Beethoven and a Guarneri-commissioned piece by American composer Derek Bermel. Students from the Special Music School (P.S. 859) coached by the Guarneri's Arnold Steinhardt offer an insight into the next generation of quartet musicians.
