ter Horst


Upcoming album From an urge to express emo­tions through music, the young Dutch composer Maarten ter Horst wrote his String Quartets No.1 and 2 (2017-2020). The works form a personal journey of love, doubt, fight­ing and hope. With a timeless, melodic musical language, Ter Horst shows a sur­prising new perspective on a clas­sical tradition. According to the Helikon Quartet: "His music speaks for itself, we couldn't help but fall in love with it."
