Calefax’ Cabinet
of Curiosities

Hidden in the attic of the Calefax’ Mansion lurks a wondrous cabinet of curiosities. Filled with the most desirable and rare objects. Here we embrace all that’s peculiar, and we can travel without having to leave the concert hall.

Join us on a musical adventure with the unique imagination of Bibers Sonata representative and parts of the renowned Carnaval of the Animals by Saint-Saëns. Calefax expanses their eccentric collection of instruments with new finds. Dive into the deep with the contrabass clarinet and float on the sound of five portable organ or the melancholic Duduk.

Discover forgotten instruments and be amazed by extraordinary combinations and beastly caprioles.

Programme a.o.

Camille Saint-Saëns Carnival of the Animals (parts)
Arvo Pärt Pari intervallo
