The Rondane Quartet is made up of the pianists Robert Lambermont, Laura Sandee, Petra van Oort and Daphne Keune. This quartet specializes in the music of Simeon ten Holt and has maintained a close relationship with the composer for years. They regularly give perfomances of his lengthy compositions for four grand pianos: Canto Ostinato (1979), Lemniscaat (1983), Horizon (1985), Incantatie IV (1990) and Meandres (1998).

cd releases

In September 2010 the Rondane Quartet launched their first double CD of Canto Ostinato which was sponsored by Simeon ten Holt personally. Later it was followed by the release of CD albums of Horizon, Lemniscaat, Incantatie IV and Meandres. All albums received favourable press reviews. The Rondane Quartet also plays a part in the documentary film ‘Over Canto’ (‘About Canto’) by producer Ramón Gieling, which had its world première at IDFA in November 2011.
