The Amsterdam Consort
The Amsterdam Consort is a Dutch music ensemble and performs regularly on special locations. Concerts and music theatre are the main activities of the ensemble and consists of 4 to 25 musicians. The consort does not focus solely on the standard repertoire. The programmes also include remarkable, little-known works, some of which are only available in manuscript and have never been published. The performances of these compositions in combination with more familiar works prove to be refreshing to listeners and performers alike.
They love to play in The Amsterdam Consort because of the common vision on the performance of the music, the inspiring atmosphere and the special context of the projects. Not unimportantly, the musicians all have an affinity for Mediterranean culture, cuisine and wine. The shared passions for music and culture and the outstanding quality of the musicians result in vibrant performances.
The musicians have known each other for many years through performances in other orchestras and chamber music ensembles, such as the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. Kees Hülsmann was concertmaster in the RPhO where Mariëtte Landheer and Marieke Stordiau were also members. Jeannette Landré and Marieke Stordiau are regular members of the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. Albert Adams has combined his musical career as a freelance violinist and viola player in the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Combattimento Consort Amsterdam with management positions in several ensembles and orchestras.
