Approaching their 25th anniversary in 2020, Australia’s premier string quartet remain in demand internationally as performers and recording artists. With no changes to their line-up since their inception in 1995, the Goldners bring unmatched musical intuition to every phrase. It’s this closeness that makes them so appealing to watch in performance – every motion and every glance appears in the music as well.
The quartet will perform a program exploring the first quartets of Shostakovich, Webern and Prokofiev.
PROGRAM to include
SHOSTAKOVICH String Quartet no 1
WEBERN Langsamer Satz
PROKOFIEV String Quartet no 1
“One only had to hear the opening bars to realise this is a very fine quartet indeed.”
The Telegraph, UK – City of London Festival review 2011
“The Goldners give the most sublimely articulate and raptly communicative reading of Elgar’s elusive String Quartet that it’s been my privilege to encounter.”
