Notes & Reviews:

The most colorful saxophone quartet in the world! Old music, new music, popular music, world music - anything goes with Remco Jak, Olivier Sliepen, Bas Apswoude, and Ties Mellema. But there is one condition: the music played by the Amstel Quartet is good, gripping music, presented in a way that complements, enriches, and clarifies the music. Technical limitations do not exist, and musical boundaries are there only to be crossed!
