The Goldner String Quartet is Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet. Its members are well known to both Australian and international audiences through orchestral and solo performances, their many recordings and their concurrent membership of the Australia Ensemble@UNSW.
Their programme conveys the contradictions and complexity of life with subtlety and depth of feeling. Haydn’s Dream quartet is radiant and airy but questioning with moments of unsettled introspection. Beethoven’s Serioso quartet builds a powerful and dramatic tension only to banish it with irrepressible joy. Schubert’s Death and the Maiden quartet is filled with intense emotions and dark beauty.
