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, have found themselves in culturally vibrant Amsterdam. , where they are currently studying at the Conservatory with the Dutch saxophone star Arno Bornkamp. As part of their internationally renowned saxophone class, they have already played in the main hall of the Concertgebouw as well as the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ.
Inquisitive and always eager to broaden their horizons, they attend masterclasses 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 leader Marc Danel and to learn from their rich tradition. Recently awarded the first prize in the chamber music category of the International Competition "Vítor Santos" in Portugal, the Dokwerk Saxophone Quartet has now been offered the opportunity to record their debut CD. 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.
