“Calefax – five extremely gifted Dutch gents who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet.”

– The Times

They are the inventors of a completely new genre: the reed quintet. They provide inspiration to young wind players from all over the world who follow in their footsteps. Calefax is a classical ensemble with a pop mentality.

Known around the world for their adventurous approach to presenting their concert programmes we look forward to seeing this come to life in this nationwide tour. The programme presents a captivating blend of classical compositions that will transport you through time and across cultures. From the intricate harmonies of Bach’s Baroque masterpiece to Schubert’s Romantic lyricism, and the jazzy rhythms of Gershwin’s iconic An American in Paris.

Calefax are thrilled to be performing the world premiere of a newly CMNZ-commissioned work that celebrates the diverse and vibrant musical heritage of our country.
