Visions at Sea!

 

On July 1, 2011, in the presence of our cellist Joachim Eijlander, Joey Roukens put the finishing touches on his composition Visions at Sea, written for the Rubens Quartet and commissioned by the Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam. We are thrilled and honored to have such a special piece written for us!  The world-premiere took place on October 1, 2011, to mark the re-opening of the Scheepvaartmuseum, in the presence of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. Since then, the Quartet continues to perform Visions at Sea all over the world, for example in the US, the UK, France and Israel. Below is a little peek of the score...
