A decade in the same formation - unfortunately, fewer and fewer ensembles manage that. But the Goldmund Quartet is one of them and their new album "Travel Diaries" shows which personalities of today's music scene have influenced them and with whom they have worked over the last ten years. Ten years is a long time. As a musician, you get to know many composers during this time, interpret their works, or even work on these together with them. The Goldmund Quartet has done this with a number of well-known composers: Fazil Say, Dobrinka Tabakova or Wolfgang Rihm. They are all well-known names in contemporary music culture with whom the ensemble interpreted, rearranged or even reinvented works. The close collaboration with some of these composers played a big part in this: "While we're working on the music we can sense how the work evokes memories and emotions in Fazil, which in turn gives new impetus to our interpretation. For instance, in the third movement he describes a cantilena in unison between the first violin and the viola as a fateful flirtation that is disturbed by the second violin using Bartok pizzicati and loud, accentuated notes emulating a hysterical voice of jealousy. The psychological essence of the work can, up to a point, be figuratively transferred to the music-making and interaction between the members of a string quartet. We strive among ourselves in order to achieve the expression of profound emotions. We go through our ups and downs too."

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
