The Matangi Quartet gave a concert of string quartets by Hendrik Andriessen, Jan Mul, Herman Strategier and Hendrik’s youngest son Louis Andriessen in January 2020. It was a particularly special occasion because it was once again apparent that the quality of the instrumental writing displayed by these composers was of the highest.

The concert, organised and presented by the Andriessen/De Klerk Foundation in Haarlem, caused this body and the Herman Strategier Foundation to consider whether these works might be recorded on CD, as such a project would fulfil their most important goals: the revelation, documentation, registration and performance of these composers’ works. An important piece of cultural heritage would also be preserved on record. As Matangi, we are proud that we could contribute to the recording of these works from Dutch music history. It was even more special for us to be able to add …miserere… by Louis Andriessen to the CD, since we were able to work intensively on it with Louis.
