Goldner String Quartet 2022
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.
