On Sunday 8 July Goldmund Quartet won the String Quartet Prize and Quartet Commission Prize at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition. This success in Melbourne comes only a few weeks after the Goldmund Quartet won 2nd prize at the recent Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition in London.
The Quartet performed Brahmsâ€™ String Quartet No.2 to clinch first prize in the String Quartet Robert Salzer Foundation category. They followed this by winning a special award for the best performance of a commissioned piece for the competition by Holly Harrison.
To reach the final, in Round One they played Haydnâ€™s String Quartet in G major, op 54 No.1, Sokolovichâ€™s Commedia dell Arte III, and Rihmâ€™s Quartet No.4. They followed this in Round Two with Harrisonâ€™s Balderdash and Ravelâ€™s String Quartet.
