Morrison Artists Series: Calefex Reed Quintet (Canceled)

Saturday, November 2, 2013, 5:00 pm
Calefax, established 25 years ago, is in great demand worldwide, not least because of its unique instrumentation consisting entirely of wind reed instruments. The quintet performs standing up and always introduces itself and the program 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 premieres. In the hands of Calefax it all sounds fresh and new. Free.

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 U.S. “Calefax — five extremely gifted Dutch gents…made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet.” — The Times (London)
