The Ponticellos

A quartet consisting of 4 cellists:

  • Clarien Zetsma
  • Menno van Woerkom
  • Else Schot
  • Siem Huijsman

 

Since 2014 these four passionate celllists explore the repertoire for this combination.

A small selection from the repertoire:

Aleksandr Kouznetzoff (1847-1918): Suite en cinq parties pour quatre violoncelles, op. 28

Rudolf Matz (1901-1988): Quartet in D minor for four violoncellos

Samual de Lange Jr (1840-1911): Nocturne und Romanze für vier Violoncelli

And then there are a lot of arangements for four celli which we play with great pleasure.

Among these:

Beethoven: Andante from the first symphony (arr. Archibald Evans)

Gershwin: Rapsody in Blue (arr. Jascha Bordon)

Rossini: Guillaume Tell (arr. J. J. Rijkmans: Suite pour 4 violoncelles sur quelques thèmes de l’opéra de Rossini, nov. 1973)
