Goldner String Quartet

The Goldner String Quartet is supported by Martin Dickson AM and Susie Dickson

The Goldner String Quartet has widespread recognition as not only Australia’s preeminent string quartet but as an ensemble of international significance. Still retaining all founding members, the Goldners celebrate their 27th Anniversary in 2022. Their performances have been acclaimed throughout Australia, UK, Europe, USA, the Asia-Pacific, and NZ. They regularly appear at major festivals at home and abroad and are Quartet-in-Residence at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music. Career highlights include performances at London’s Wigmore Hall and New York’s 92 St Y, whilst special projects include a retrospective of 20th Century quartets and the complete cycle of Beethoven’s String Quartets (these performances were recorded live and won the 2009 Limelight 'Best Classical Recording' Award). The Quartet regularly premiere new works, commissioned from many of Australia’s leading composers.
