For their final Melbourne performance and farewell, The Goldners have hand-picked a program that holds great meaning and significance for the ensemble.

Carl Vine’s exquisite String Quartet No.3 is a fitting celebration for the composer’s 70th birthday year, and whose works have featured memorably in The Goldners’ repertoire over many years.

The Goldners have chosen one of their favourite movements from Beethoven’s String Quartet No.15, Op.132, Heilige Dankgesang. This is a piece the quartet describes as a musical conduit for ‘how we can all relate to times in our lives when we have struggled to overcome illness and adversity. The extended movement is the consummate musical expression of this human condition.’

And to conclude Goldner String Quartet’s final performance, they gift Melbourne audiences with the Australian premiere of Pēteris Vasks’ recently composed String Quartet No.6. A profound, autumnal work that captures the feelings of a composer looking back over a long and fruitful life and drawing on much of the choral tradition of his native Latvia.
