Reviews

“In Haydn’s String Quartet op. 33 No. 5 they display their quartet sound – articulated and delicately balanced.” (hr2-Kultur, January 2017)

“An acute sense of timing distinguishes both music and interpretation in this promising recorded debut from the Munich-based Goldmund Quartet. These preformances show how the players understand that silences and pauses always mean something in Haydn, as a means of disconcertion or of gathering thought.” (The Strad, December 2016)

“Their delicate and intense sound touched the audience.” (Landshuter Zeitung, June 2015)
