This page presents programmes the Amstel Quartet developed in past years. The quartet not only dived into the masterpieces (19th century symphonies, Wagner’s Ring) but also into the refined chamber music repertoire (saxophone quartets by Keuris and Glazunov, adaptations of Ravel, Franck, Barber). Old masters such as Bach and Sweelinck combine beautifully with recent masterpieces by Pärt, Torke and Tan Dun. There will be many premieres as well, by both Dutch and foreign composers. Allow us to surprise you!
Below you will find diffferent categories that each consist of a number of programmes of varying lengths (for instance, with or without an intermission).
The quartet plays a large part of the repertoire by heart, which makes it all the more easy to customise the programmes. Regard the quartet’s repertoire list as a box of candy from which you can pick and mix the sweets which take your fancy. The members of the quartet will explain the works that they play during the concert.
