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.
