Edward Elgar Piano Quintet in A Minor, Op. 84

Formed in 1995 in honour of Richard Goldner, the founder of Musica Viva Australia, The Goldner String Quartet has a widespread and long-standing recognition for excellence, as not only Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet, but as an ensemble of international significance. Still, with all four founding members, the Quartet’s stability of membership is enjoyed by few ensembles.

Young Adelaide composer Jakub Jankowski’s new String Quartet is followed by one of the most popular works in all chamber music, Dvorák’s ‘American’ quartet, which assimilates both Bohemian and Afro-American folk influences into its bright, celebratory texture. Elgar’s big bold Piano Quintet, inspired by the rural beauty of his country retreat, is unabashedly romantic with an expansive symphonic sweep.

'The recordings… had suggested that this was a group of the highest international class; their playing in the City of London Festival confirmed that completely'
