Maxim Shalygin: Songlessness

In its 25 years of existence, the saxophone quartet Amstel Quartet has used the saxophone to its full potential. No wonder the Dutch press called the Amstel Quartet “the most colorful saxophone quartet in the world”. For several years the quartet has been working closely with the Ukrainian-Dutch composer Maxim Shalygin, who writes superb, ambitious, and physically intense music. The work Todos los Fuego el Fuego that he wrote for Amstel Quartet and the Keuris Quartet made it into the NRC’s top 5 best classical music of 2019. The collaboration went so well that Shalygin rewrote his new piece Songlessness for the Amstel Quartet, this time joined by organist Una Cintina. An imaginative and infinite sound world that explores our perception of time and its flexibility. The concert will be a part of the Gaudeamus Music Week.
