Rising Stars with string quartet
German string quartet Goldmund Quartett.
Saturday 14 March 2020 16.00Ends approximately 18.00
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. In a unique and forward-looking partnership between 21 of Europe’s leading concert halls, which belong to the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO), six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour all of the concert halls and perform before an international audience.
The Goldmund Quartett – nominated by Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and Philharmonie de Paris – already have two albums that have received significant buzz. One is dedicated to the work of Joseph Haydn and the other to Dmitri Shostakovich, two major innovators in music for quartets. We will enjoy Haydn’s masterful quartets Opus 76, and Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 3 which he withdrew after the world premiere for fear of retaliation from the severe Soviet regime. We will also hear music by Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and a new composition by British-Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova.
