Thank you for visiting!
We’ve created this page to introduce ourselves to you. We are Fuse, a string- and percussion formation from Amsterdam. The photos on this page are taken during some of the 500+ shows we performed over the past five years. Please scroll around and read about our endeavors. If you want to skip this introduction and watch us perform, visit our video page.
..all the music we love. Past and present.
The line-up of Fuse (a string quartet with double bass and percussion) enables us to develop our personal melting pot of styles and genres, evolving with every step we take.
Our repertoire ranges from the rhythmic music by Bartók, Ravel, Frank Zappa, John Coltrane to works by Bach, Previn, Miles Davis, Shostakovich among others.
Along the way, we have the pleasure to collaborate with clever composers and arrangers such as Tom Trapp, JacobTV, Theo Loevendie, Max Knigge and Rob Horsting.
Late 2016 we released our debut album Studio containing music by Nils Frahm, Dave Brubech, Bartók, Frank Zappa, Claude Chalhoub a.o.
In 2017 the album was nominated for an Edison Award. Listen here!
Fuse is touring throughout the year at a wide range of stages; theaters, churches, concert halls and living rooms all over the Netherlands and abroad.
a small selection:
Recently we cooperated with the renowned Concertgebouw Jazz Orchestra, clarinettist Kinan Azmeh, Dweezil Zappa and Ienieminie from Sesamestreet ;-)
Throughout the year, Fuse is a regular guest on tv-show Podium Witteman, a weekly live broadcast about (classical) music.
Furthermore, we performed multiple times on popular daily talkshow De Wereld Draait Door, were featured on all public radio stations, and composed and recorded the leader-music for tv-show Opium.
