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)

 

Review Camiel Boomsma in de Groene

De muziek is een klooster. Terwijl de openbare mening steeds brutaler echte kennis aan de laars lapt, verdiept een kleine groep uitverkorenen zich achter de schermen in het denken en voelen van begraven grootheden met recht van spreken. Daar zijn de pianisten, die na twee eeuwen, of bijna, Schubert en Chopin niet kunnen loslaten.

Camiel Boomsma review concert Vlissingen

New review for Camiel’s concert on 18-11-2018 in Vlissingen:
“…If you didn’t have goose bumbs because of the cold, you would have after the incredibly subtle and natural interpretations of pianist Camiel Boomsma.  A full hall enjoyed his recital in MuZEEum Vlissingen…”

CD Camiel Le Disque du Jour

“…C’est aussi à la Sonate en si bémol que s’attaque Camiel Boomsma, dont le disques Liszt avaient montré la sonorité magique, et il attends tous les tourment que Marc-André Hamelin tient à distance.
