Celebrating its 29th Season in 2023, the Goldner String Quartet has long-standing recognition as not only Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet, but as an ensemble of international significance, favourably compared with the best in the world.

The Quartet is named after Richard Goldner, founder of Musica Viva Australia. Launched in 1995 and still retaining all founding members, the musicians are well known to Australian and international audiences through their performances and recordings and for their concurrent membership of the Australia Ensemble at UNSW. All members have occupied principal positions in organisations such as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Australian Chamber Orchestra. 

Unanimous audience and critical acclaim following their London debut at Wigmore Hall in 1997 ensured the Goldner Quartet’s invitations to prestigious UK and European festivals. Performances in the USA and throughout Asia have followed, in addition to several tours of New Zealand. 

The Goldners’ most recent tour saw performances in the UK, including the  Wigmore Hall (broadcast by the BBC) with long term collaborator, pianist Piers Lane. The Quartet also appeared in Ireland and in Italy for the opening of the 2019 Biennale Arte in Venice.

The Quartet regularly appears at many of Australia’s leading music festivals including Musica Viva’s Sydney Festival, Music in the Hunter, and at Huntington Estate amongst others, in addition to being Quartet in Residence at the annual Australian Festival of Chamber Music, in Townsville, North Queensland.

In addition to the Goldner String Quartet, some of Australia's finest musicians come together to make Mendelssohn's Octet possible... and more....
