About the Event
The Dokwerk Saxophone Quartet is a young and energetic chamber music ensemble formed in 2019. Originally from four different corners of the world, the four members, Lisa Schreiber, Jen-Hong Wu, Ileana Termini and Pedro Silva , found each other in culturally vibrant Amsterdam. There they are currently studying at the Conservatory with the Dutch saxophone celebrity Arno Bornkamp. As part of the saxophone class, they played in the main hall of the Concertgebouw and the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. Furthermore, last year they had their debut as a quartet in Tivoli Vredenburg. They can also be heard regularly on national public broadcasting and television and during major festivals such as the Grachtenfestival and the Schiermonnikoog Festival. Eager to learn and always enthusiastic to broaden their horizons, they visit master classes all over the world, and draw inspiration from important saxophonist ancestors such as Joonatan Rautiola and Lars Mlekusch , but also other sources, such as the Baroque specialist Walter van Hauwe, and expert for contemporary music, composer and percussionist Arnold Marinissen. Furthermore, the quartet has recently become part of the NSKA, the Dutch String Quartet Academy, where they have the opportunity to work with, among others, artistic director Marc Danel and learn from their rich tradition. The quartet can regularly be found among the prize winners of various chamber music competitions, including the 2021 International Competition “Vítor Santos” in Portugal. The Dokwerk Saxophone Quartet has been offered to record their debut CD in 2023. They also received the first prize as well as the podium prize during the Dutch 'Chamber Music Competition Gelre 2022'. Awarded the shared first prize of the Italian Competition for Contemporary Music 'Reate', they celebrated their Italian debut in Rome at the end of 2022. By combining their individual cultures and backgrounds, these four find an endless richness and variety of musical possibilities and choices. Open-minded and clear, they strive to establish a constant place for the classical saxophone, in the music of today and tomorrow!
