Because of the Covid restrictions we have moved our Zoom festival to September. We have very exciting guest musicians and an adventurous programme. Check it out on zoomfestival.nl.
Our latest CD is out. Ravel’s quartet in F major, Dutilleux’s “Ainsi la Nuit” and Debussy’s “Clair de Lune”
Press release Quart de Nuit (in Dutch)
Welcome to Michael! After 15 years Jeroen has decided to leave the quartet to dedicate his life to other things, mainly cello-related. We are very happy to announce that Michael Müller will be succeeding him. Michael has played with some prominent quartets in the past, like the Parkanyì Quartet and we are very much looking forward to working together in this new configuration!
During the second edition of the String Quartet Biennale in Amsterdam the Ruysdael Quartet will perform twice: Beethoven’s op. 18/4 on January 28 and the Terry Riley’s entire Salome dances for Peace on January 30. http://www.sqba.nl/
After the successful trip of 2015, the Ruysdaels are invited again to perform 4 concerts in Japan. This time the trip will take them to Tokyo, Nagoya and Yokohama. On the menu there are quartets by Ravel and Tchaikovsky, but also the Mozart clarinet quintet with Charles Neidich!
