Had a great session with Winnie Cheng (violin) and Ilonka Kolthof (flute) yesterday. On the last snowy day of the season we played - how appropriate - Georgs Pelēcis' Snow Prelude and Fugue for our upcoming recording session in Orgelpark, Amsterdam... more on that later! ☃️

Coming Friday, we will release our live recording of Hugues Dufourt's composition for saxophone quartet: Les courants polyphoniques d'apres Klee. It will be available on all streaming platforms. The track was recorded in December 2019, at the Waalse Kerk in Amsterdam. At the time we made an aftermovie of that evening, which we'd like to use now to give you a sneak preview of the music!

What a strange year this was! Looking back, we were lucky to have played two concerts in Germany in September. We still have some pictures from this 'mini-tour' to Wennigsen and Stuttgart, reminding us how much we love playing abroad. Let's hope for the better in 2021, and from all of AQ: a merry Christmas for now! . #saxophones #quartet #amstelquartet #germany #facemask #tour #googlemaps #merrychristmas

🇺🇸 Marc Mellits - Tapas Five 🇺🇸 Now that we know that no more live concerts will take place in 2020, we might as well turn to our screens again to see the live music we so dearly miss. Last fall we filmed two tracks of our new album American Dream live at Theater Ludens in Voorburg. Even though some snippets of this performance were already used to promote our album, we’d like to share the first track as a whole with you now. Watch our performance of Tapas Five by Marc Mellits in full on our youtube channel. . #usa #americandream #music #saxophones #saxophonequartet #amstelquartet #amsterdam #tapas #modern #classicalmusic #mellits
