The Goldner String Quartet has widespread recognition as not only Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet, but as an ensemble of international significance, favourably compared with the best in the world. Still retaining all founding members, the Goldners celebrate their 27th Anniversary in 2022. Their performances have been acclaimed throughout Australia, UK, Europe, USA, the Asia-Pacific, and NZ. They regularly appear at major festivals at home and abroad and are Quartet-in-Residence at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music.

Career highlights include performances at London’s Wigmore Hall, and New York’s 92nd St Y, whilst special projects include a retrospective of 20th Century quartets and the complete cycle of Beethoven’s String Quartets. These performances were recorded live and won the 2009 Limelight 'Best Classical Recording' Award.

Numerous CDs are released on Hyperion, ABC Classics, Tall Poppies and Naxos labels, which have received rave reviews including Diapason D’Or, Editor’s Choice in Gramophone magazine, BBC Music Magazine and in Limelight magazine. 

Strongly committed to teaching the next generation of string quartets, the Goldners have mentored young ensembles through programs of the Australian Youth Orchestra, Musica Viva Australia and the Sydney Conservatorium.

The Quartet regularly premiere new works, commissioned from many of Australia’s leading composers.

Saxophonist     Nick Russoniello Guitarist             Murilo Tanouye

Duo Histoire has forged a reputation as one of Australia's most unique and engaging chamber duos. This combination of classical guitar and saxophone features award-winning musicians Murilo Tanouye and Nick Russoniello each accomplished soloists in their own right. The duo's broad repertoire takes audiences from the tango halls of Argentina to the streets of São Paulo, the salons of Paris and the laneways of Sydney.

Since its formation in 2006 Duo Histoire has fascinated audiences with their virtuosity, authenticity and lyricism. As well as appearing at music festivals and concerts across the country for organisations including Sydney Festival, Musica Viva, City Recital Hall and Australian Digital Concert Hall, their album Autumn/Winter can be regularly heard on ABC Classic FM.
 

“Both musicians involved are fine players, whose presentation of exquisite repertoire deserves to be heard by the widest audience.”
