𝘼𝙣𝙖𝙨𝙨 𝙃𝙖𝙗𝙞𝙗 & 𝘼𝙢𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙡 𝙌𝙪𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙚𝙩 - 𝙎𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙤𝙪𝙡 We are very proud to announce that in three weeks from now, on April 9, our new album 𝘚𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘚𝘰𝘶𝘭 will be released. All songs were recorded live at Bimhuis in December 2020, together with singer Anass Habib. With Habib, we adapted the music by Fairuz, Kalthoum, Sayid Darwish and many others - acclaimed and renowned musicians in the Arabic world that are hardly known in Europe. We hope to change that. Keep an eye on our streaming platforms. Link in bio! #anasshabib #singer #amstelquartet #saxophones #saxophonequartet #arabic #music #fairuz #oumkalthoum #sayiddarwish #crossover

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! ☃️

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
