Chamber Music Northwest (CMNW) presents The Goldmund Quartet in an online premiere, Saturday, March 20, 7 pm. The show will be streamed at CMNW.org and available through Saturday, March 27. The concert was recorded at the Bibliothekssaal Polling in Bavaria, Germany.
One of the most exciting young string quartets in the world, the Goldmund Quartet’s playing has been awarded prizes at major competitions such as the Wigmore, Melbourne and ARD Munich. In this concert, the Quartet performs chamber works written by Puccini, Strauss and Schubert on their historic set of Stradivari instruments once owned by the great virtuoso Niccolò Paganini.
The Quartet consists of Florian Schötz, violin; Pinchas Adt, violin; Christoph Vandory, viola; and Raphael Paratore, cello. They’ve performed classical and modern works for more than a decade and their inwardness, intonation and phrasing inspires audiences worldwide. Named Rising Stars of the 2019/20 season by the European Concert Hall Organisation, the Nippon Music Foundation awarded them a full set of Stradivari instruments.
An All-Access Pass is $49 and single concert tickets are $20. Both available at tinyurl.com/CMNW21.
