“Light, silvery sonority and graceful style…clearly a talented ensemble on the rise.”
—Chicago Classical Review
The Dudok Quartet Amsterdam is the recipient of a 2018 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, the prestigious Dutch Kersjes Prize, and prizes in the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition and Joseph Joachim International Chamber Music Competition Weimar. The quartet has appeared at major European venues and festivals including the Vienna Konzerthaus, Carinthischer Sommer Festival, Festival Quatours à Bordeaux, and the Amsterdam String Quartet Biennale, and has appeared regularly at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Amsterdam Muziekgebouw. Their most recent release on the Resonus Classics label, Solitude, features music of Mendelssohn, Weinberg, and Shostakovich. Other recent projects have included the world premiere of Kaija Saariaho’s opera Only the Sound Remains with Philippe Jaroussky and the Dutch National Opera, and a collaboration with director Rosabel Huguet reimagining Beethoven’s Op. 132 String Quartet for children. This performance will be followed by a subscriber reception.
