Ricercar of Musikalisches Opfer

Calefax gives all wind players the opportunity to play along with a track of the new album Bach’s Musical Offerings.

Calefax celebrates their 35th anniversary with a collection of musical offerings from Johann Sebastian Bach, arranged by their saxophonist Raaf Hekkema. From the Ricercar of Musikalisches Opfer, oboeist Oliver Boekhoorn made six separate recordings with Calefax in which one of the instruments is missing. Wind players can download their part with an audio file in which this part is missing.
