About the artists
Dimity Hall is well known to national and international audiences as a member of both the Goldner String Quartet and the Australia Ensemble@UNSW with whom she has performed, toured and recorded extensively, to critical acclaim. In Australia, Dimity has performed with the Australian Chamber Orchestra as Principal Second Violin, guest Leader and soloist, with the Sydney Symphony as guest Principal, and as guest Concertmaster with the Australian Opera and Ballet, Melbourne and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras.
Julian Smiles is one of Australia’s leading cellists. Julian has occupied many of the most prestigious positions in the Australian classical music scene. He was for several years Principal cellist with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and has performed frequently as guest Principal cello with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra. In 1991 he was invited to join the Australia Ensemble, the University of New South Wales’ acclaimed resident chamber music ensemble, and in 1995 formed the highly successful Goldner String Quartet with Ensemble colleagues Dene Olding, Irina Morozova and Dimity Hall. These groups continue to be regarded as representing the pinnacle of chamber music in the country, and the Goldner Quartet in particular has established an international reputation with rave reviews of their recordings and recent performances in the UK.
