Another throwback to our release concert at Orgelpark. Because of the lockdown it is unclear when we will perform again, however, let’s not forget that experiencing music with fellow listeners is such a beautiful thing. At our CD presentation Laura Sandee joined us and together we played Pelēcis’ Sunlight Sonata. A soothing and hopeful piece. The composition was originally premiered in the Beethovenhalle in Bonn in 2012, hence the reference to the famous Moonlight Sonata. For now: you can listen to our new album online >> link in bio, or order a physical copy via our website amstelquartet.nl. We hope we are able to share it live on stage again soon! 📷 by Foppe Schut #saxophone #saxophonequartet #amstelquartet #newmusic #sonata #moonlightsonata #beethoven #pelecis #orgelpark #amsterdam

We had such a great time finally sharing our newest album Pelēcis to the public in the majestic Orgelpark. The new album is recorded entirely at the Orgelpark and during our CD presentation we played the work Gaudeamus?, a capriccio for organ and saxophone quartet. Organ player Una Cintina took up the Verschueren organ, the French romantic organ of the Orgelpark, which not only looks great but also sounds wonderful. You can listen to Gaudeamus? yourself via the link in our bio! 📷 @foppeschut

We proudly present our new album Pelēcis, filled with compositions from the Latvian composer Georgs Pelēcis. His music often is described as 'new consonant' and is characterized by a warm and lively style, at times leaning towards minimalism and incorporating folk music influences of his native country. We hope you enjoy his work as much as we do! Check it out via >> link in bio or order the CD for underneath your christmas tree via https://www.amstelquartet.nl/shop_recordings
