In 2021 the Ruysdael Quartet will celebrate its 25-year existence. Part of this special season will be a new recording with repertoire that is close to our hearts. On Tuesday 24 November we will be making a live registration in the beautiful Hervormde Kerk in Renswoude. The concert will be in two parts:
19.00: Cage: Quartet in four parts and Beethoven: op. 18/4
21.00: Andriessen: Miserere and Schubert: Death and the Maiden
It now looks like we can invite 30 people to each concert. If you are interested in being part of this special event, please send us an email and we can put you on the guest list, first come first serve!
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!
