Philippe Elan, Thérèse Steinmetz & Amstel Quartet proudly present: Manège à trois
Vinyl Release Concert:
Thursday March 7th, 20:30, Betty Asfalt Complex Amsterdam
Hot off the press! Amstel Records releases its first record on Vinyl: five Chanson Classics, on a 10’ 45 rpm Vinyl recorded and mastered by cutting-edge sound engineer Paul Pouwer, featuring gorgeous artwork by Henc Smit. And there’s quite a story behind this “Manège à trois”…:
in 2014, Philippe Elan and the Amstel Quartet released their album “Sax avec Elan” - hailed by the critics as a “revelation” and “balm for the soul”. It was no other than Dutch legend Thérèse Steinmetz who heard Philippe and the quartet during one of their promotion concerts: it inspired her to release “Amsterdam, Paris” with Philippe a year later. Now, in 2019, the circle is complete with this collaborative tour-de-force. Fun detail: still in time for this year’s Eurovision, this EP contains Luxembourg’s 1965 winner by France Galle “Poupée de cire, poupée de son”, in a flamboyant arrangement by Sylvia Maessen.
After the release date the Vinyl will be available through our webshop and select record stores. Along with the vinyl record, you'll also get a download code, with an optional choice of high-resolution audio. It will also be released digitally on all current platforms.
