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.”

Ladies [and gentlemen]

Het Amstel Quartet maakt zich sterk om de vrouwelijke componisten op de kaart te zetten, zo ook in dit concert. Wie heeft er ooit gehoord van Maddalena Casulana? Haar 16e-eeuwse tijdgenoot Orlando di Lasso was in elk geval onder de indruk van haar werk.
Ook hoor je in dit concert Jennifer Higdon. De Pulitzer prize-winnaar schreef een origineel zesdelig werk dat de uitvoerders naar eigen believen kunnen samenstellen. Verder klinkt muziek van Christian Lauba, Fernande Decruck en Marc Mellits.

Music with Changing Parts

with Amstel Quartet and Laura Sandee & Pascal Meyer keyboards

With Music with Changing Parts (1970), a monumental work from Philip Glass’s early period, Amstel Quartet returns to the meditative and grooving world of hard-core minimalism.

This work, consisting of repeated melodic figures which gradually expand and contract, shares some of the rhythmic, trance-inducing aspects of the earlier Music in Similar Motion.

However, through the addition of subtle vocal parts and long tones improvised at different moments in the piece by the musicians, the music acquires a different dimension and anticipates Glass's opera work of the later 1970s, such as Einstein on the Beach.
