Calefax Reed Quintet

Brilliant! That’s the best way to describe the music of this Amsterdam-based quintet, which records and tours worldwide. Calefax wins fans with its unusual instrumentation — saxophone, bass clarinet, clarinet, bassoon and oboe— and stunning phrasing and masterful interpretation. From early music to classical and jazz to world premières, in the hands of Calefax, it’s fresh and new. The New York Times praises their “unadulterated virtuosity,” while The Times of London calls them “five extremely gifted Dutch gents who almost make the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet.”
