Desguin Kwartet releases debut album!

After four years of quartet, hours spent reading scores, rehearsing, searching and gnawing on the tiniest of details. In a sweltering attic, in a cosy classroom in a music school, in a cramped living room with the furniture moved to the side, in a freezing church. On a Sunday morning, Friday evening, Tuesday afternoon. On a masterclass in Prague, Paris, Compiègne, Roussillon. Hours of travel, hours of conversation, planning and dreaming out loud. The quartet finally released their long awaited debut album!

The Desguin Kwartet connects a bubbling Benoit to a sensitive Ryelandt and conclude with a brand new piano quintet by the new kid on the block: a swinging, vibrant Coppens.

Ryelandt Trio releases new album!

On the 1st of October, Ryelandt Trio released it’s new album titled ‘Ryelandt & Callaerts: Late romantic piano trios from Flanders’ on the Etcetera Records label. The album features the complete piano trio repertoire of Joseph Callaerts and Joseph Ryelandt. Not only does this album feature music which was never recorded before, but it was also recorded in a historically informed manner. The trio decided to play on instruments (and gut strings!) from that time and create a unique sound which was so common in the early 20th century.

Es ist noch nicht alles verloren!

In the Wuppertal station, above the door of the lost property service, the mesmerizing German sentence “Es ist noch nicht alles verloren!” is written. With this in mind, one of Belgium’s finest classical music festivals is working towards its 2021 edition. As part of the upcoming line-up, we’re happy to have recorded the promovideo with them, bringing a message of hope with Debussy String Quartet in G Minor opus 10.
