      Goldner String Quartet & Piers Lane : [PERFORMANCE CANCELLED]

      Event Details


      These are concerts of masterpieces, performed by masterly artists the equal of any in the world. Australia's most recognised and beloved pianist, Piers Lane, joins his dear friends the Goldner String Quartet in a national tour that marks the quartet's 25 years of musical brilliance. This quintessence of musical royalty plays with unprecedented cohesion and authority, drawn from decades of recordings and performances together.

      The Goldners add a new chapter to their storied history of premiering Australian quartets, with a fresh work from Jakub Jankowski. Korngold’s expertise with vocal lines is exquisitely applied to his op 15 piano quintet: its expansive slow movement is based on one of his ‘Songs of Farewell’. Friends praised Brahms’ famous op 34 quintet as 'beautiful beyond words'. Program Two features Elgar’s Quintet, a rare chance to hear his piano-writing. Composed just after the Great War, he acknowledged its nostalgic, retro quality: ‘It is full of golden sounds and I like it. But you must not expect anything violently chromatic or Cubist.’ Dvořák’s popular ‘American’ Quartet blends New World birdsong with Old World melody.
