Goldner String Quartet and Ian Munro head to Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth

It’s certainly been a busy tour for the Goldner String Quartet and Ian Munro. After a concert in Coffs Harbour last night the group is now on its way to Melbourne where they will perform tomorrow night. Tomorrow’s concert will be broadcast live on ABC Classic FM from 8pm so you can either relive the performance or experience it afresh if you haven’t had a chance to hear them live. Tomorrow’s concert feature Szymanowski’s String Quartet no 1, Brahms’s Piano Quintet, and of course Munro’s own Piano Quintet no 2.

The group also appeared on Radio National’s Music Show discussing Ian’s Quintet and the Goldner’s recent recordings. If you missed it you can listen to it by clicking here.

Next week the group heads to Adelaide, then Perth for the final two performances of this tour. In Perth, the Goldners and Ian will also give masterclasses at the University of Western Australia. And in Adelaide they will all participate in a Q&A after the concert hosted by Simon Healy. Our post-concert artist chats are a great way for you to gain an insight into the lives and performances of our artists. On this tour, for example, people have wanted to find out more about Ian’s Quintet, particularly the percussion instruments used.
