7 december 2016
From a recent review by Hans Quant: “Their youthful enthusiasm will set you aflame and their playing is of such a high standard of quality to turn you green with envy. - Their ensemble playing is perfect, the players respond flawlessly to one another. - As young as they are, this string quartet has already achieved possible level.”
Quatuor Van Kuijk will be playing in The Hague and Tilburg in February 2017 with a programme featuring works by Schubert, Debussy, Nishimura and Ravel. During the Schubert Festival 2017 in The Hague (18 & 19 February) they will also be performing this composer’s famous string quintet, for which they will be joined by cellist Quirine Viersen. As ‘Rising Stars’, they will be making their début in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in June 2018.

New to Squire Artists: Joachim Eijlander
6 june 2016
Dutch cellist Joachim Eijlander is an enterprising musician with a wealth of experience in music ranging all the way from the Baroque era to the 21st century. After many years of intensive string quartet playing, he is now exploring new avenues in the form of the solo repertoire (with orchestral accompaniment and for cello solo), and additionally numerous other forms of chamber music.
"The lightness of the Dutch cellist’s détaché bowing owes something to period performance, but it is a stylistic reference of articulation rather than something didactic. In essence, his approach reflects a detailed but informed, instinctive response that allows for spontaneity."
Joanne Talbot, the Strad January 2016 - Bach Cello Suites, Vol. I

New to Squire Artists: Gioele Muglialdo & Movies in Concert
1 mei 2016
As an eclectic and versatile musician, Gioele Muglialdo has mastered a repertoire ranging from all forms of classical music to musical, film scores, jazz and pop music. A fundamental aspect of his musical career, which in this project is a major factor, is his long-time experience in the particular technique of synchronizing music and images, without any technical equipment.
It places him among the exclusive number of conductors specialized in cine-concert, screening of films with an orchestral accompaniment. Gioele Muglialdo is, at the moment, the only Italian conductor skilled in this repertoire.
His future cine-concert engagements in 2016 include Charlie Chaplin's "City Lights" in the German city of Wolfsburg and his debut at the Monte Carlo Opéra in 2016, at the prestigious Salle Garnier, performing Fritz Lang's masterpiece "Metropolis".
