The Goldmund Quartet is now counted amongst one of the most exciting young string quartets in Europe. Since their debut at Munich’s Prinzregententheater, the Quartet has appeared at many international festivals. In October 2016 NAXOS released their debut CD with works by Haydn, which garnered great reviews from the BBC, The Strad Magazine, Gramophone Magazine, American Record Guide, Applaus, Süddeutsche Zeitung and many more. Another recording of the Shostakovich string quartets was released on Berlin Classics in July 2018.

Here is charming early Mozart followed by Debussy’s impressionistic and magisterial quartet. Then a new work by young Australian composer Elizabeth Younan, and to end, Mendelssohn’s anguished final quartet written after the death of his beloved sister.
