Cello aan zet

3 p.m. Het Cenakel

On Sunday 27 October it’s the cello's turn! The Belgian cello quartet Assai will perform at the Cenakel in Tilburg. In addition to two brand new spatial compositions by Jo Sporck and Richard Cameron-Wolfe (USA), they will perform two works by J.S. Bach: his second suite for cello and the famous Chaconne, originally written for violin solo.


Assai Cellokwartet

The Assai Cello Quartet was formed in 2013 and is composed of four cellists: Koen Berger, Helena Fuertes, Johanna Peiler and Shuya Tanaka. These four musicians unite the temperament and the characteristics of four different nationalities: Belgian, Spanish, German and Japanese. Based on the mission to support the creation of high-quality new music within a thematic and innovative program, the quartet often collaborates with contemporary composers and arrangers.


Introduction with Richard Cameron-Wolfe

For those interested, there is an introduction to the performance, in the presence of Richard Cameron-Wolfe, at 13.30 at the composer Jo Sporck’s home: Jan van Beverwijckstraat 61. You can sign up by e-mail: or by telephone: 013-5350689.
