Pamela Smits is founder and artistic director of the concert series Vriendenconcerten since 2013. For this coming season the brilliant young Dutch pianist Tobias Borsboom will join her as guest-artistic leader.
The 7 concerts of this series takes place at the beautiful 17th century church, the Zuiderkerk in the heart of old Amsterdam.
Third concert of this season:
Date: Sunday 25 March 2018, at 16:00 hrs.
A concert with the saxophone in a special role. As a chamber music-, orchestral- and solo-instrument, it sparkles in all roles! We get a whiff of the atmosphere of cities Addis Ababa and Montevideo in compositions by Lago, and stay warm with the Argentinean spring and summer of Piazzolla. We will also hear Denisov's stirring and jazz-like sonata, one of the cornerstones of the saxophone repertoire.
Not only will the internationally renowned Arno Bornkamp play on his sax, he will also bring along a number of his own students who, playing in an ensemble, take on the role of an entire orchestra in 3 solo concerti; Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, the Cello Concerto of Gulda, and the sax concerto Escapades by the well-known film composer John Williams. Music that flirts with pop culture!

"From the first note of the famous quintet the Pentachord Ensemble overwhelmed with their lightness, precision and very agile way of playing. Schubert escaped from all the clichés. Also is in all their smaller group arrangements The Pentachord a joy to the eye and ear, because of the dedicated music making of the musicians. A sparkling ensemble that left the audience of the museumchurch of Schokland in awe."
-from a review of the Noordoostpolder newspaper.
"The Trout Quintet can be reckoned among the gems of classical music. Of the Dutch music ensembles the Pentachord threads a long chain of gems with their way of playing. Moreover, for the entire ensemble applies that they posses a special musical gift and that they feel intensely connected to their instruments, one can see that, one can hear that."
-from a review of the Nieuwe Meerbode, Aalsmeer (NL)
