Event Details

Music and architecture come together in a series of talks and concerts hosted in, and inspired by, the singular buildings of Australia’s most famous modernist architect, Harry Seidler.

The internationally acclaimed Goldner String Quartet perform works by six of Australia's best loved composers: Sculthorpe, Edwards, Westlake, Vine, Stanhope and Hindson. Formed in 1995 in honour of Musica Viva's founder, Richard Goldner, the Quartet has long-standing recognition, not only as Australia’s pre-eminent string quartet, but as an ensemble of international significance.

The Quartet comprises Dene Olding (violin), Dimity Hall (violin), Irina Morozova (viola) and Julian Smiles (cello). 2018 marks the Quartet's 23rd anniversary – their shared experience lends the Quartet an intimacy and musical intuition that shines through in every performance.
