Candlelight Concert: Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet

April 18

Hundreds of candles and the wonderful acoustics in the Portuguese Synagogue set the stage for unique evening concerts. This month, Yuri Honing’s quartet will handle the music. The quartet has been synonymous with passionate and virtuoso jazz for more than ten years.

The fifth album by the Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet, Heaven on My Mind, was released at the end of 2023. Their previous albums were thematic, inspired by musical or literary role models. The title of this album indicates more introspection, while retaining Honing’s ‘powerful, full tone’ (de Volkskrant). Honing himself explains that this album gets closer to the jazz of Charles Lloyd, Pharoah Sanders and the free acoustic jazz of the hippie movement.
