2020 Sydney Morning Masters
Concluding the 2020 season, the last to be programmed by Carl Vine, it simply had to be the Goldners, Australia’s finest string quartet, celebrating their 25th anniversary. With no changes in membership during this time – an extraordinary achievement in itself – the Goldners bring an unmatched sense of togetherness to every phrase.
Their program includes a new short work for string quartet by rising Sydney composer Christine Pan, matched with the creative flair of middle-period Beethoven in his ‘Serioso’ Quartet, and the fresh, joyous, early quartet of a young Felix Mendelssohn, composed during his first visit to England.
