Watch the clip of 'Inner Circle'
SAVE THE DATE: 21.09.21
On the 21st of September Artvark will release their 10th album: Mother of Thousand. New music inspired by the sound of Arvo Pärt and Aphex Twin. A soundtrack for the ultimate road trip.
The first single of the album is called 'A Slide's Nest'. On this track we play a combination of very rare slide saxophones from the collection of Leo van Oostrom. These instruments produce a sound you've never heard before. We are serious....NEVER heard before. A genuine world premiere.
The second single of the album is called 'Inner Circle'. New music for historic instruments. That was the challenge we set for ourselves. On this track we are playing 4 original Adolphe Sax saxophones with original AS mouthpieces, all build between 1861 and 1866 in the workshop of Adolphe Sax himself.

Artvark & Apollo: Two Saxophone Quartets Collide & Merge (Teaser)
After several intense and fruitful collaborations the past years, Artvark released a new album as a quartet: trance. Trance is being performed throughout 2018 and 2019 in the Netherlands and abroad. Read more on our projects page. To order the trance CD: send us an e-mail.
Artvark's music is alternately meditative and exciting and has a very visual character. It never gets boring, because at the right time the alto sax players snatch you from the upcoming hibernation. It's that playfulness, ever remaining musical, that is the characteristic of this musical ensemble. The music of Artvark sounds fresh and new every time.

Artvark has added another landmark to their body of work. 'Trance' is a cd to cherish and enjoy endlessly.
Jazzflits Sjoerd van Aelst
They say music knows no boundaries and, we add, jazz knows even fewer. Dutch act Artvark does not simply play, but performs their music. Literally from the first step, this saxophone-only band was different from all others. The band snapped and tapped on stage, turning their movements and sound into a dance. If it can be said for jazz players: they rocked the house…
