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

As the new concert season of 2020-2021 is on its way, we’d like to highlight some of our favourite projects for you. Today: Classical Zen - With Classical Zen, Amstel Quartet brings a selection of iconic minimalist works to the stages. Philip Glass' legendary Mishima soundtrack is combined with the heavenly Harmony of the Spheres by Joep Franssens and the saxophone quartet Four5 by avant-gardist John Cage, but particular attention is also given to the work of spectralist Hugues Dufourt. Amstel Quartet premiered Dufourt's latest saxophone work, Les courants polyphoniques d'après Klee, in 2019 - 25 years after the publication of Dufourt's first saxophone quartet. The Waalse Kerk in Amsterdam proved to be a beautiful stage for the concert, that was attended by the composer himself. Revisit the evening on our Youtube channel!

As the new concert season of 2020-2021 is on its way, we’d like to highlight some of our favourite projects for you. Today: Free Beethoven - 250 years ago, one of the greatest composers in history was born: Ludwig van Beethoven. Amstel Quartet pays tribute to the man who led classicism into romanticism and unmistakably left its mark on Western music history. To celebrate the birth of the 'Father of Romanticism', his works are presented by Amstel Quartet in elegant transcriptions and arrangements, combined with modern interpretations and works by composers from the 20th and 21st century; compositions that resemble Beethoven's structural renewal, sense of drama and revolutionary identity like no other. #ludwigvanbeethoven #500years #beethoven #saxophones #amsterdam #saxophone #quartet
