who almost made the reed quintet seem the best musical format on the planet. - The TimesMore about Calefax
In April 2018 ‘Hidden Gems’ will be released. Our newest album with a colourful collection of gems, with music from several corners of the world and various periods of music history.
Together with Matangi String Quartet, Rembrandt Frerichs Trio and vocalist Mohammad Motamedi we play at the Oriental Landscapes Festival. With works by Eastern and Dutch Composers.
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.

The musical pearls from our new album Hidden Gems are imbued with remarkable facts and background stories. You can read them here. The first piece that we highlight is the Prélude, fugue et variation by César Franck (1822-1890).
