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. 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.’ Dvor?ák’s popular ‘American’ Quartet blends New World birdsong with Old World melody.
