“The Goldner Quartet's performances are a model of conviction and insight.”

The Strad


“The Goldner is one of the world's most industrious quartets, with a hectic tour schedule within native Australia... The programme suits the group's performing style: its ability to produce a microcosm of the subtle shades required for the first of Szymanowski's quartets is matched by the aggressive quality demanded in the second quartet. Rarely can two works from the same composer, written only ten years apart, occupy such different sound worlds: the change from the shimmering post-impressionist character of the first quartet to the high-impact second quartet is typical of Szymanowski's capricious nature. Both works are given accomplished performances, the Goldner's unfailingly accurate intonation matched by faultless internal balance. ...the Goldners capture their quirky nature to perfection”
