Goldner String Quartet and pianist Piers Lane live

Hats off to these Aussies !

I heard only the Korngold Quintet, a real jewel , at about 1:02:00 into the concert. Apparently recorded Feb.3 , 2019, in Wigmore Hall, London.

From BBC Radio 3 :

“ The acclaimed Australian string quartet are joined by their compatriot Piers Lane for a 20th century programme. Webern's Langsamer Satz from 1905 is a lush, Romantic-sounding work, closer to Brahms than his subsequent austere and pared-down 12-tone music. Korngold's 1921 Piano Quintet, too, is very much of a part of the same late-Romantic Viennese idiom - a style Korngold would shortly to take to Hollywood. From 1964, and dedicated to his third wife, Shostakovich's ninth quartet, in contrast to much of his quartet output, shows the composer in a relatively positive mood. “

Piers Lane, another of the great pianists in front of us. So many, it is beginning to be difficult to keep up with them.

For pianophiles , I highly recommend Lane's recordings of the complete Saint-Saens Etudes and Vaughan-WiIliams Piano Concerto.Also have his cd of the complete solo piano works of Eugen D'Albert, an acquired taste. There is also a cd ( not Lane ) I have of the complete piano works of Teresa Carreno, very conservative music ,surprisingly.
