Reviews ‘Celebrating Women!’

“…The Hague String Trio performs all four compositions to the highest possible standard. Every note is crisp and pure, not one entry is missed – the alert way in which the three musicians respond to each other and their overwhelming enthusiasm for the music irrevocably drag one along. The recording technique is also excellent. Hyde, Frensel-Wegener, Smyth and Britton-Smith could not have wished for better ambassadors…’  Contemporary Classical – Thea Derks

New Album Celebrating Women!

Metamorphoses 5 years!

Metamorphoses 5 years!
This month we celebrate the 5th anniversary of Metamorphoses. They have toured in Netherlands, UK and Spain and hopefully they can continue with their concerts this summer – after more than a year silence. Many concerts are plannend in UK, Netherlands and they start this summer in Spain. They are also very much looking forward to go to Russia for some concerts coming season.
Last season should have seen the world première of Theo Loevendie’s piece METAMORF, which was specially written for them, but this has been moved forward to the 2021/22 season.
Here’s a video to celebrate their 5th anniversary:
