The International School of The Hague

Amstel Quartet has often been involved with educational activities focusing on young saxophonists and, especially, young composers. Having their musical ideas workshopped and performed by a professional group is a very inspiring experience for a composer, and the collaboration always leads to some very creative and unusual performances.

Paris - Beyrouth featuring Anass Habib & Philippe Elan


Van de rivier de Seine tot de bruisende wijk Hamra, Amstel Quartet brengt muziek uit Parijs en Beyrouth samen. Want ondanks dat de steden kilometers uit elkaar liggen, lijken ze toch op elkaar. Beide zijn muzikale hotspots, die de liedkunst uit de regio centraal zetten. Samen met Philippe Elan en Anass Habib laat het saxofoonkwartet horen dat thema’s als liefde, verlangen en verlies universeel en grenzeloos zijn. In de fameuze Franse chansons en muziek vol verhalen en emotie uit het Midden-Oosten hoef je de taal niet te begrijpen om passie te voelen. Een avond vol bekende liederen uit de Levant van onder andere Oum Kalthoum en Fairuz maar ook werk van de grote chansonniers uit de Franse muziekgeschiedenis: Jacques Brel, Charles Aznavour en Edith Piaf. Van het Parijs van het Oosten, tot het Beyrouth van het Westen!

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.
