Calefax and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague have been working together for a number of years, a.o. in the project 'Reed Orchestra' & the Masterspecialisation 'Reed Quintet'.
From October 10th Calefax starts touring with violinist Liza Ferschtman. Composer Oene van Geel wrote a new work for reed quintet and violin inspired by the life and work of photographer Vivian Maier.
We are very excited to announce the winner of the 2018 Barlow Prize: Stacy Garrop. She composed a major new work for reed quintet.
Calefax invites composers of all ages and nationalities to participate in the 10th annual Composers Competition for Reed Quintet.
