New altist: Minna Svedberg

We would like to introduce you to our new viola player: Minna Svedberg Feldtmann! After a fantastic time, José Nunes is leaving the ADAM Quartet. We would like to thank José for every great memory we made together and wish him tremendous luck in the future. We are very happy to have found a great successor: Minna Svedberg. Minna studied with Lars Anders Tomter at the Royal Danish Music Academy in Copenhagen, at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" Berlin and at the Amsterdam Conservatory with Nobuko Imai and Marjolein Dispa. From September, she is a full-time member of the ADAM Quartet. Press photos of the new line-up will follow soon.

ADAM x Camiel Jansen

ADAM @ 50 For The Future

On 6 and 7 May 2023, the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam presents 50 for the Future together with the Kronos Quartet, the Muziekgebouw, the Ragazze Quartet and numerous other quartets. This very first and, for the time being, only integral performance of this magnum opus by the Kronos Quartet offers two days full of premieres and special stories.


The ADAM Quartet has been selected as one of 38 quartets to be part of the European platform "MERITA". This platform increases the visibility and dissemination of emerging European quartets while promoting cultural heritage. MERITA goes hand in hand with Le Dimore del Quartetto.

ADAM in the Concertgebouw

A dream of the ADAM Quartet is coming true! On 22 February, the quartet will perform in the Small Hall of The Concertgebouw. The programme will include Prokofiev's second string quartet and a world premiere of "Sherbet Lemon", written by Camiel Jansen.

ADAM X Entrée | DB55

We're going on a date! Entrance x DB55 invite you to 'Your Classical Date Night'; Celebrate Valentine's Day at a special location in De Houthavens. Enjoy a specially composed three-course menu together and listen to classical music played by the ADAM Quartet.

ADAM & Kika sprangers

Saxophonist Kika Sprangers and the ADAM Quartet on a musical adventure. Classical works from the repertoire for string quartet (Ravel, Schubert) are juxtaposed with arrangements of Kika's own compositions. The musicians dive into each other's worlds, playing classical melodies and improvising.

ADAM at the NSKA festival

The Dutch String Quartet Academy is celebrating its 20th anniversary with its own festival on 18 June. With a rich and varied programme, you can enjoy the finest string quartet music all day long. The ADAM Quartet has a very nice part to play in this festive day: the Young Composers Project. Scattered throughout the day, the ADAM Quartet will play six new works by young composers from around the world.

ADAM & Thomas dulfer

On 8 May 2022, the ADAM Quartet will be heard together with bassoonist Thomas Dulfer in the Jurriaanse Zaal in De Doelen. Together, they will explore the well-known but also the unknown bassoon repertoire! Tickets can be found via the link below.

Our new altoist: José Nunes

After three wonderful years, our altoist Liselot Blomaard has decided to leave the ADAM Quartet. Liselot wants to broaden her horizons further and of course we understand that. From the very beginning, Liselot was involved in the ADAM Quartet as an altoist and her contribution to our quartet has been invaluable. We are extremely grateful to her for that and will miss her greatly.
Fortunately, we have found a worthy successor in José Nunes. Like the other quartet members, José graduated from the Amsterdam Conservatory of Music, studying with Francien Schatborn and Nobuko Imai. We are extremely happy with José and cannot wait to introduce him to you.

Press photos in the new line-up will follow soon.

ADAM goes to Schier!

Janácek in the centuries-old Stifts church

On 23 January 2022, the ADAM Quartet will play a concert in the beautiful Stiftskerk. This church, which originally dates from the 12th century, lends itself perfectly to chamber music concerts. The ADAM Quartet already experienced this during the "Musical Encounters" of the Stift Festival, where they were guests last year. Now they return to this church's chamber music series with Beethoven and Jánacek on the programme.

Kika Sprangers invites ADAM Quartet

Kika and ADAM will play twice on this Sunday: the first time at 14:00, the second time at 16.00. For more information, visit the Wild West site.
