The five Calefax musicians did something very special; they discovered their own music genre, the reed quintet. For more than 30 years they play in the unusual formation of oboe, saxophone, bassoon, clarinet and bass clarinet. In the beginning there barely existed any music written for this formation, but nowadays a lot of composers wrote music especially for them. During this afternoon you hear how beautiful the instruments sound together and what it is like for the woodwind players to perform together.
