The Paganini Quartet will have a new owner from the 2019/2020 season. The legendary “devil-violinist” Niccolò Paganini owned and played the four instruments made by Antonio Stradivari until his death. After a long journey through music history, the treasure is now in the hands of the Goldmund Quartet thanks to the generous loan from the Nippon Music Foundation (Tokio).

Goldmund Quartet

String Quartet

“A highly individual musicality that speaks to the audience.”

Counted amongst the most exciting young string quartets, the Goldmund Quartet has with its exquisite playing and multi-faceted homogeneity given convincing interpretations of the great classical and modern works of the string quartet literature for more than a decade now. Their inwardness, unbelievably fine intonation, and phrasing worked out to the smallest detail inspire audiences worldwide.

Awarded at the prestigious 2018 International Wigmore Hall String Competition and winners of the 2018 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2018, the Goldmund Quartet has been named Rising Stars of the 2019/20 season by the European Concert Hall Organisation as well as laureates of the Jürgen Ponto-Foundation. The Nippon Music Foundation has awarded the Quartet with a full set of Stradivari instruments.

Following their successful debuts at Europe’s most prestigious concert halls such as Wiener Konzerthaus, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Palau de la Musica, the 2020/21 season sees the Quartet continuing their ascent as one of today’s most exciting young string quartets with recitals at Philharmonie Luxembourg or Casa da Música Porto. Other highlights this season include appearances at Edinburgh International Festival, Beethovenfest Bonn, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and a tour of Japan with performances in Suntory Hall, Shirakwa Hall and Izumi Hall.

In 2020, Berlin Classics released the Quartet’s third recording “Travel Diaries” featuring works by Wolfgang Rihm, Ana Sokolovic, Fazil Say and Dobrinka Tabakova which Harald Eggebrecht depicted “one of the liveliest and most inspiring string quartet CDs in recent time.” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). “Travel Diaries” is a personal musical journey featuring contemporary works by composers the quartet worked with over the last ten years.

The Goldmund Quartet has been awarded several prizes and scholarships, the most recent distinctions are the second prize and the special award for the best interpretation of a 20th century string quartet at the International Wigmore Hall String Competition 2018 and the first price along with the price for the best interpretation of the commissioned work at the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2018. The Quartet also received the Bavarian Young Artist Award and the Karl-Klinger-Prize during the 2016 ARD International Music Competition Munich. The Jürgen Ponto Foundation has named the Goldmund Quartet as the recipients of their 2020 biennial music bursary. In summer 2019 the !uartet received one of the most valuable sponsorships of the Nippon Music Foundation. It provides the Quartet the Paganini Quartet of Antonio Stradivari for four years.

Educated by Günther Pichler of the Alban Berg Quartet at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofia and the Artemis Quartet in Berlin, the Quartet has received important artistic impulses in master classes with the Hagen, Borodin, Belcea, Ysaÿe and Cherubini quartets, Ferenc Rados, Eberhard Feltz and Alfred Brendel.

Recitals have taken them to prestigious chamber music venues and series in Denmark, France, Norway, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, China, Australia and the US. Regular chamber music partners include artists such as Jörg Widmann, Ksenija Sidorova, Pablo Barragan, Alexey Stadler, Wies de Boevé.
