A Night at the Cinema

Film scores by Morricone, Bernstein, Glass, Wagner, Barber, Nyman

Music makes everything better. Parties come alive with music and supermarkets would be far more boring places to visit without a musical background. Storytellers have been utilising the power of music to enhance their stories from the very beginning. Music plays an essential role in films too. It intensifies key scenes and makes the drama even more dramatic. But every now and again the music breaks out from its supporting role and earns itself a place in the concert hall. In A Night at the Cinema you will hear stories without words and see films without images.

Sax avec Elan!

Sax avec Elan! Terug in Het Betty Asfalt, met Golden Oldies en Hollandse en Franse Nieuwe. De mooiste chansons van Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, Edith Piaf, Ramses Shaffy, France Gall ... en vele anderen ... in een ongekende combinatie!

Laat u meeslepen door ontroerende Franse en Nederlandse chansons én aangrijpende verhalen, in een unieke combinatie. Philippe Elan, een begrip voor iedereen die van het Franse chanson houdt.

Philippe is zijn muzikale loopbaan ooit begonnen op de saxofoon bij de plaatselijke fanfare, maar het werd hem al snel duidelijk dat zingen zijn echte passie was. Een levenslange haat-liefdeverhouding met de saxofoon was het gevolg. Is het dus toeval dat hij nu een samenwerking met het Amstel Quartet aangaat? Een knipoog naar zijn eigen verleden?

Le Saxophone Romantique

Creston, Wagner, Vrolijk, Barber and others

“An instrument with a sound resembling that of a string instrument, but with more power and intensity.” That is how Adolphe Sax described the saxophone in 1846, shortly after he invented it. In the following century his instrument was to become the most versatile and most expressive of all the horns. In Le Saxophone Romantique the Amstel Quartet takes you on a journey through pastoral landscapes, melancholy meadows and rushing rivers. Seductive European romance, with a touch of Americana.

Sax avec Elan!

Philippe Elan and the Amstel Quartet

Music by Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour, Edith Piaf and others

Drift away with moving French chansons and compelling stories, in the unique combination of chansonnier Philippe Elan and the Amstel Quartet. Elan is a household name to anyone with a passion for the French chanson. He once began his musical career playing the saxophone in the local brass band, but it soon became apparent that his true passion was to sing. The saxophone continued to play a part in his life though and so it was no coincidence that he said yes to a collaboration with the Amstel Quartet: they understand like no other what singing is. And the chansons by Brel, Aznavour and Piaf are perfectly suited to him. The press quite rightly wrote: “Philippe Elan sings these songs with such charm and passion that he effortlessly illustrates why these chansons have become classics.”
