Calefax is a close-knit ensemble of five reed players united by a shared passion. For more than three decades they have been acclaimed in the Netherlands and abroad for their virtuosic playing, brilliant arrangements and innovative stage presentation. They are the inventors of a completely new genre: the reed quintet. Calefax can be defined as a classical ensemble with a pop mentality. They take on an adventurous approach to presenting its programs and have an astonishingly varied repertoire ranging from 1100 to the present day. They perform their own arrangements and newly commissioned compositions for the unique combination of oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet and bassoon. Calefax is open to the influence of world music, jazz and improvisation as a result of countless international tours and collaborations with all kinds of musicians. This evening's program will include: Locatelli (1695-01764) – Introduzione teatrale 6 / Janácek  – Zdenka Variations 9 / Muhly – Look for me 6 / Gershwin – An American in Paris 19 / The Goldberg Variations.
