ASSAI cello quartet
Founded in 2013, the ASSAI cello quartet was born out of an initiative from four symphoniaASSAI members to explore and expand their collaboration beyond the symphonic frame. Since then the quartet has been performing regularly in Belgium (Brussels, Antwerp, Hasselt, Peer, Voeren). A highlight in 2013 was the quartet’s residency at the International School of Brussels (ISB) as part of the school’s Visiting Artists and Scholars Program.
Although Johanna Peiler, Koen Berger, Brian Howard and Helena Fuertes all met and regularly work together in Brussels, they combine the character and qualities of four different nationalities: German, Belgian, American, and Spanish.
Passionate about music in general and the cello in particular, the members of the ASSAI cello quartet want to share their enthusiasm and energy not only through orchestral playing, but also through this very particular chamber ensemble.
The cello, having a very broad range from bass to soprano register, is particularly suited to form a quartet of four identical instruments.
With a wide repertoire of original pieces and interesting transcriptions, the ASSAI cello quartet´s repertoire includes the music of J.S. Bach, A. Piazzolla, M. Ravel, and J. Jongen, among many others.
