The Dutch Pianists’ Quartet (1977/1998), previously known as the Orgella Quartet, was founded in 1977. It consisted of four pianists performing at two pianos: Niek de Vente, Marian Bolt, Corien van den Berg and Robert Nasveld. All musicians won their spurs in the field of chamber music. The classical repertoire of this ensemble, to a large extent, consisted of original compositions for this combination by among others Smetana, Liszt, Balakirev, Moscheles, Rachmaninov, and was developed over the years by means of research in libraries all over the world.

The Dutch Pianists’ Quartet also concentrated on performing contemporary compositions by Dutch and foreign composers. Several works were especially composed for this ensemble. The repertoire was thus been enlarged with works by, to name but a few, Ton Bruynèl, Robert Nasveld, Theo Loevendie, Edison Denisov, François-Bernard Mâche and Gavin Bryars.
