who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet. - The TimesMore about Calefax
From 6 December 2018 we will be touring with our new program 'Inside the Mind of a Composer'. In this concert Calefax shows how music is being born, is developing itself and finally is showing itself in full glory to the world. With music by a.o. Bach, Debussy, Schumann.
On Friday, December 28, we present the fifteenth edition of the PAN Festival, our annual party concert between Christmas and New Year's Eve in Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. We perform ourselves and host a wide variety of top musicians, ensembles and artists from other disciplines!
To celebrate our new album, we created a special app, the HIDDEN GEMS Treasure Hunt, that takes you on an exciting musical quest through different cities (in the Netherlands) with music from our new album.
Calefax tours six to eight concertprogrammes per season in the Netherlands and tours abroad to a.o. the USA, China, Japan, UK, Eastern-Europe and Germany.
