Maxim Shalygin – Todos los Fuegos el Fuego
Together with Keuris Quartet and Maxim Shalygin, we'll perform this magnificent piece again.
Shalygin’s Todos los Todos el Fuego (2019) is a new, nearly 90-minute long work for saxophone octet, inspired by the Argentinian writer Julio Cortazar. While there have been other original works for 8 saxophones, no work has ever combined tonal and avant garde elements with the scope and scale found in Maxim’s piece, called “A Mahler Symphony for 8 saxophones” by the Dutch press.

“Devastating, breathtaking. It’s not difficult to point out the most impressive concert at November music. That was the fiery Todos los Fuegos el Fuego, for 8 saxophones by Maxim Shalygin.”
Rene van Peer – Brabants Dagblad
“With a wide range of colours and dynamic means the performance by Keuris and Amstel is breathtakingly intense and exciting.”
Remy Frank – Pizzicato Magazine
“Assisted by the phenomenally playing Keuris and Amstel Quartets, he moulded it all into a perfectly logical, resolute discourse: There’s no other way than this.”
Joep Christenhusz – NRC
