The Goldner String Quartet has a long-standing reputation, not only as Australia’s preeminent string quartet but as an ensemble of international significance. Joined by pianist Piers Lane, they explore two rarely heard English quintets from the early years of the 20th century. Frédéric Alfred Erlanger’s chamber music is small but distinctive. His piano quintet of 1902 is notable for its lyricism and strikingly dramatic style. Thomas Dunhill was closely associated with chamber music, running his own series of concerts in London’s Bechstein Hall, where his 1904 piano quintet was first performed.
