Thank You Goldner String Quartet

On Friday 5 April 2019, The Goldner String Quartet, fresh from recording sessions and concert appearances in the UK, presented a concert for Sydney Mozart Society that displayed their technical mastery, sensitivity and rapport.

Their performance of  Haydn's Op. 50 Dream quartet was radiant and graceful. They met the challenge of Beethoven's  Op. 95 Serioso quartet with a performance that was both powerful and joyous.The drama and lyrical intensity of their performance of  Schubert's Death and the Maiden quartet was thrilling. 

Tony Burke reviewed the Quartet's performance for ClassikON. "Thanks to their crystal-clear interpretations and playing this was a highly successful evening" he wrote. You can read his full review on the ClassikON website. 

These are our favourite photos from the ensemble's pre-concert rehearsal at the Concourse.
