'Trust' for String Quartet and Choir (2023)

Leading up to the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam, young string quartets participated in the SQBA residency program where they collaborated with a group of blind amateur singers. Together, they explored what they had in common and what made them different, while learning to feel and inspire one another, communicate their boundaries, and work together as a team.

Trust‘ for String Quartet and Choir (2023) is the title of two programs developed by the Dutch Belinfante Quartet and the Belgian-Polish Karski Quartet, together with visiually impaired amateur singers. Composer Matijs de Roo wrote a piece that brings both groups together in a new sound world, an impressive culmination of a year and a half of collaboration. Royal Visio, the expertise center for visually impaired and blind people, was closely involved in the creation process.
