The Calmus Ensemble

“Nothing short of remarkable…they, quite simply, bring whatever they sing to glorious life.” –Desert Morning News
**** First Prize Winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition ****

A perfect blend of sound, precision, lightness and wit. These are the hallmarks of Calmus, now one of the most successful vocal groups in Germany. The ensemble has forged a refined sound which few groups achieve. The wide range of sound colours, the joy in performing that musicians convey on the concert platform, and their varied and imaginative programs are praised by the press time and time again. These five Leipzig musicians have won a whole string of international prizes and competitions, including the ECHO Klassik and Supersonic Award, and the reach of their activities is constantly expanding, taking them throughout Europe as well as to North and South America. In 2010 the quintet made its debut at Carnegie Hall, New York.

Known for their musical diversity, Calmus are tireless in their quest to discover new repertoire. For their Music in the Morning debut, they will be performing a program entitled Folk Songs: That’s the way the world sounds featuring 21 songs from all over the world – 17 countries, 14 languages. Most of the songs were arranged for Calmus by renowned musicians from their respective countries.
