"... a display of sheer artistry of a kind that must surely earn Ms Gulyak a place among the world’s great concert pianists. This was a recital of the very highest class."

Sofya Gulyak

 

“From the very first notes of the Gershwin Concerto Pascal Rogé was totally, physically absorbed in the music … he remained poised over the flurry of fingers and ivories like an adrenalized cat studying a fishbowl, mapping strategy”

Pascal Rogé

 

"A young and brilliant pianist with an impeccable technical reliability and a reading charged with the most deeply rooted musical tradition. It is not only technique, but rather judgment, and a tempo that doesn't seek the brightness of velocity, but the tranquillity of profoundness".

Ishay Shaer

 

“Sivan Silver and Gil Garburg's playing was close to perfection: beautifully toned, expressive and transparent, with the utmost care for details and yet with structure and great momentum. Not less exciting was the encore which yet again demonstrated their world class.”

“Weithaas plays with vigour and power, als well as a willingness to stop and smell the flowers along the way. Her playing is lush and sweet-toned.”

Antje Weithaas

 

"It is absolutely evident just how much joy these musicians of 4.1 experience when they perform. The ensemble 4.1 not only plays in total harmony together, but their dedication to the music and the performance is shining through every note."

Ensemble 4.1

 

"The finest Brahms playing one could hope to hear" - "These four instruments are like a breath of fresh air on the chamber music scene.

Leipziger Streichquartett

 

“in Dvorak’s G major Quartet, Opus 106……It was a joy to witness the visual communication the quartet displayed with each other……if I had to single out one movement for praise, it would be the slow Adagio, in which the quartet’s glowing tone filled the entire gallery. The exciting finale was delivered with great panache. What a great start to the season.”

Piatti Quartet

 

"The sound quality of this disc is simply stunning: crisp, clear, almost razor-sharp in its realistic presentation of the string sound, and the equally crisp playing of Quartetto di Venezia makes it a pleasure to hear."

"The Martha Müller Concert Hall in state of emergency: with the American violinist and composer Mark O’Connor, Camerata Bern celebrated a dazzling closing of its 49th season...Camerata-concertmistress Antje Weithaas has sat down with the cellist and seems to wonder, when the last time was that Bern had applauded four encores."

Camerata Bern

 

"A very vivid, distinctive and already legendary pianist"

Nick van Bloss

 

"A splendid performance guaranteed with the Berlinskaya-Ancelle duo which, by the virtue of their unified playing, is reflected by an irresistible interpretation marked by a wonderful sense of freshness and relief."

Berlinskaya - Ancelle duo

 

“These four musicians form a brilliant unit. They work together like a well-oiled machine, making music with a single, big beating heart.”

Rusquartet

 

"What a wealth of colours this orchestra produces when led by a masterful conductor!” (Het Gelders Orkest)

Squire Artists launches a new series of concerts

Het Concertgebouw

We are happy to announce that Squire Artists will once again be organising a number of concerts under its own management. In addition to our contribution to the annually recurring Februari Festival in The Hague, we believe that - considering all the turbulent events of the past six months - there is no better time than the present for us to develop an initiative of our own.

The first two concerts will be held at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Recital Hall on Sunday, 1 November 2020. Soprano Aylin Sezer & conductor/pianist Ed Spanjaard and the Malevich Piano Quartet (in collaboration with the Orlando Festival) will both be presenting their programme twice on this date. All the necessary information about concert times, programmes and tickets can be found on the Concertgebouw website.

Raphael Wallfisch - Cello Concertos by Mieczysław Weinberg

Raphael_Wallfisch Weinberg CD

"Wallfisch shows what a fine cellist he is here. His playing is stunning, his sound warm, and his technique is assured."

"I would recommend this disc to everyone unreservedly, as the performances by all are of the first order, and the soloist is one of the great cellists of his generation."
