The Goldner weigh every chord to perfection, and make the textures utterly transparent…their partnership with Lane is exemplary

Dvořák composed this beloved Quartet in an astonishingly productive couple of weeks, reacting with childlike enthusiasm to the new sounds he encountered on a rare family holiday in the North American countryside. Elgar’s extraordinary Piano Quintet was likewise inspired by a rural retreat. Recovering from illness and sorrowful under the strains of the Great War, he found the ‘sinister trees’ and quiet seclusion of West Sussex an unexpected spur for the creation of this most unusual, magical work.

These two distinctive and original masterpieces throw into relief the mature and individual voice of young Australian composer Jakub Jankowski. And how brilliant to have them all performed by the Goldner Quartet and Piers Lane – long-time friends, colleagues, collaborators – who for so long have championed the old and the new with utter commitment.
