Vanishing Gold by Jonathan Dove is a 5-minute work for string quartet inspired by two little creatures: the once-abundant golden toad of Costa Rica which was last seen thirty years ago, and has been declared extinct, and the golden coquí of Puerto Rico which may also be extinct. Its distinctive two-note call is the starting-point for the piece, which is a hymn to these vanishing tiny golden amphibians.

The work was commissioned by the Endellion String Quartet on their 40th anniversary with generous support from Lark Music and Brompton’s and premiered on 29 May 2019 at Wigmore Hall, London.

The score and parts (EP 73401) are available for sale as part of the Peters Contemporary Chamber Series.
