About the event

Temperamental, atmospheric, detailed and of great beauty. This is what Jacob van Ruisdael's landscape paintings look like, and this is what the rich quartet interpretations of the Ruysdael Quartet sound like. The Dutch company has been working hard for more than 25 years. They stand out for their meticulous, crystal clear performances, playing both classical work and challenging contemporary composers to create new work. Their repertoire includes Terry Riley and work by Jörg Widmann written especially for the Ruysdael. Now for the first time on November Music!

As part of their 25th anniversary, the quartet asked twenty-five Dutch composers to write a short work - lasting one to two minutes. Composers who received an invitation include Rozalie Hirs, Anne-Maartje Lemereis, Joey Roukens, Guus Janssen, Thomas Beijer, Hanna Kulenty, Martijn Padding, Karmit Fadael, Florian Magnus Maier, Joël Bons, Jan van de Putte, JacobTV and David Dramm . No strangers to the loyal visitor of November Music. This creates a wonderful sample of Dutch composing at the beginning of the 21st century. During this premiere concert, the Ruysdael will play a selection of these modern quartet brilliants for the first time.
