The Goldner String Quartet is the string players of the Australia Ensemble (resident at the University of NSW). This is an historic set of CDs, making Sculthorpe's considerable oeuve in this genre availabel for the first time on CD.
“Peter Sculthorpe, 70 this year, has been writing quartets since his student days in Melbourne. These striking works, except No. 9 all dating from the 1960s, paint a musical landscape that’s often hard and forbidding yet, with its clarity of form and texture, always approachable. Splendid performances – precise and with all the necessary tonal variety”
