Rubens Consort

Sarah Kapustin – violin    Roeland Jagers – viola     Sietse-Jan Weijenberg – cello

The Rubens Consort is a flexible ensemble made up of world-class musicians who share friendship and a passion for chamber music. Rooted in the rich and refined tradition of the former Rubens Quartet, the leaders of the Consort interpret masterpieces for small and large ensembles from all periods in music history. The musicians of the Rubens Consort gratefully play on instruments on loan to them from the Dutch Music Instrument Foundation.

For the coming seasons they have planned two programmes:


Programme 1:
Bach / Sitkovetsky Goldberg Variations
Programme 2:
Beethoven Five Stringquartets (opus 3, 8 and 9:1-3) in a series of two concerts, completed with Duet mit zwei obligaten Augengläsern (viola/cello)
