In great demand internationally, world renowned Calefax Reed Quintet are one of the most dazzling wind ensembles performing at present. This close-knit ensemble of five reed players draws music from eight centuries of repertoire to create unique arrangements: from early music to classical and jazz to world premières, in the hands of Calefax it all sounds fresh and new.
Calefax Reed Quintet has enjoyed collaborations with pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, trombonist Christian Lindberg, mezzo-soprano Cora Burggraaf, Jungle Boldie (formerly the Tony Overwater Trio) trumpet player Marco Blaauw, percussionist Arnold Marinissen, Zapp String Quartet, cellist Matthew Barley, clarinettist Kinan Azmeh, violinist Claude Chalhoub, jazz singers Denise Jannah and Astrid Seriese, and choreographer Sanne van der Put.
This concert offers works by Bach, Fauré and Schumann, but freshly imagined, as if they were indeed written for reed quintet.
