Calefax Reed Quintet (USA)
Unisa Music Foundation Concert Series
Chamber music recital by the Calefax Reed Quintet (USA)
Calefax, established 25 years ago, are now in great demand worldwide, not least because of their unique instrumentation. The quintet performs standing up and always introduces itself and the programme to the audience. Most importantly, the five musicians arrange, recompose and interpret music from eight centuries to suit their unique constellation: from early music to classical and jazz to world premières; in the hands of Calefax it all sounds fresh and new.
The Amsterdam based ensemble has won a number of prestigious prizes and can be heard frequently throughout Europe and further afield in Russia, China, India, Turkey, Japan and the USA.
The Times: “Calefax - five extremely gifted Dutch gents who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet”.
