For their 15th anniversary Calefax wanted to illustrate the repertoire of the world’s first-ever reed quintet so the selection of gems on this CD spans six centuries, from Ockeghem to Ter Doest and Koolmees. With 600 Years Calefax, the musicians show their versatility and recognize that instrumentation, arrangeing and (re-)composing is an important factor of the art of making music.
