PROJECTS

Light, video-projections and new music. A production with Hendrik Walther for the Dutch Classical Talent competition. It should be an energetic experience for everyone: people may like it or not, as long as they do not stay neutral.

... and we still dance!

Young girls have a vibrant energy. And we're going to celebrate it! Because white socks are there to get dirty.

WILD

Fado, a Portuguese guitar and a saxophone quartet. “Renascer” gives name to a project where a new life is given to the Portuguese musical genre, on a full Portuguese collaboration.

Ciudades CD

Ciudades is the debut album of the Maat Saxophone Quartet and brings stimulating musical episodes of “normal days”, urban scenes such as a local bus ride or a busy market. An energetic fusion of clear melodies and occasionally extremely complex but infectious rhythms. Guillermo Lago (Willem van Merwijk) wrote an extension of his famous work of the same name for saxophone quartet and string quintet especially for Ciudades. New, inviting music by the equally young and hard-working composers Ramin Amin Tafreshi (Iran) and Nuno Lobo (Portugal) and an arrangement of Albeniz' famous 1st Spanish Suite complement this debut.

“They speak the same language, literally and musically! Very high technical level, organic playing and an insanely tight presentation”

Dutch Classical Talent

“We can be brief over the playing of Maat: promising, devilishly good and heavenly contagious”

De Luister

We are the MAAT saxophone quartet:

Daniel on soprano, Catarina on alto, Pedro on tenor and Mafalda on baritone. Welcome to our website!

 

We have been playing together since 2018 and we went through a lot. With each step, we discover more about each other’s talents and ideas as saxophone players, but also as "maatjes". In the projects we do, we look for the connection between our individual personalities, our ideals as artists and our strength as a group. Just as important is the connection to the world and society that surrounds us.

 

In 2018 we were honored with the prize “Prémio Jovens Músicos”, one of the most prestigious classical music competition in Portugal. Portugal, that is where we are from. Our quartet was however formed in Amsterdam, while we were studying at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Arno Bornkamp.

 

We travel back and forth between the Netherlands and Portugal to play concerts, rehearse and visit our family.

Since 2019 we take part in the NSKA - Dutch String Quartet Academy.

 

In April 2020 we released our first CD “Ciudades” under the label 7 Mountains.

 

Although we play pieces from all kinds of ages and environments, we have a passion for new music. We have closely worked together with the composers Nuno Lobo, Arnold Marinissen and Ramin Amin Tafreshi. We are excited about finding our own sound-world, and we are happy to play a part in the development of music and the future of the saxophone quartet repertoire. In 2022 we won the Dutch Classical Talent Award.

 

In 2023 we will release our second CD called "Renascer", featuring Portuguese guitarist António Carlos Costa.
