MOnforte, PO – Marvao Music Festival
This young German ensemble plays beautifully with a light touch, fleet tempos, and no disfiguring HIP mannerisms. The first two works shine with this treatment. I think this quartet has a bright future ahead of it.
These four musicians know what they are doing – not only as individuals but even more as an ensemble. In Haydn’s op. 33 No. 5 they displayed their interpretation of a string quartet’s sound – articulate and delicately balanced.
The Goldmunds make a beautiful sound, elegant and transparent, with a real sense that these four players are friends both on and off the concert platform.
