The Amstel Quartet clearly revel in the challenges provided by the works written, or adapted, for saxophone quartet by three master composers: Gabriel Fauré, Alexander Glazunov and Philip Glass.
The Amstel Quartet’s latest CD, Amstel Peijl, was released on the CAG Records label in late 2008. The disc includes landmark saxophone quartets by Glass and Glazunov and an arrangement of a Fauré quintet with pianist Wijnand van Klaveren. The group has previously released four discs, including their successful debut CD, Straight Lines. Of this disc, one critic correctly claimed Straight Lines reflects the versatility of the saxophone quartet and how the instruments’ rich sound lends itself so successfully to various musical genres.
