The five musicians of Calefax are the inventors of the Reed Quintet, a completely new genre in music history.

Calefax shares its repertoire with reed quintets, gives workhops and masterclasses and inspires musicians, artists and new professional reed quintets. All over the world new reed quintets are popping up, following Calefax’ example; from Argentine to New-Zealand and from the United States to Europe.
