WHO ARE WE? WHO IS THE DUTCH STRING QUARTET?
I am Scarlett Arts and the cellist and founder of The Dutch String Quartet. With my husband, farmer Henk, and daughter Apollonia, I live in Havelte (Drenthe, NL) among the fruit trees, chickens and the cows.
I think playing the quartet is the most beautiful and fun thing there is. It is a conversation with three other musicians in which you cannot or do not want to do without each other and in turn you get a moment to move the listeners.
When one of them is prevented by orchestra service, there is always a permanent replacement. That is why a booking can always proceed.
We keep up with the times and play tablets and can therefore take around nine hundred titles on the road. Every party is different, we choose what suits your day. There is never a shortage of light or too much wind for the sheet music; We are ready! We play a lot in the ‘Randstad’ but enjoy traveling to the province of Groningen, Zeeland, Friesland and Limburg and everything in between.
Our string quartet, string trio or ensemble with pianist also provides concerts. For example, in the Concertgebouw we played ‘The Four Seasons’ with Rosanne Philippens as soloist, in a sold-out venue. On June 10 last year, the hall was once again full during our beautiful concert where my colleagues from The String Quartet were right in the spotlight as soloists.
IF YOU CHOOSE THE DUTCH STRING QUARTET, YOU KNOW SOME THINGS. WE:
… touch people with our game (goosebumps moments)
… like to think along with you and listen carefully to what you want
… are flexible, also on site
… adjust the music to the occasion and the company
… work properly; you will never see suitcases or sheet music on your photos
… we really enjoy this work. We are accessible, friendly and like to smile.
