CLASSICAL MUSIC OF THE VOCAL VARIETY!
“Calmus Ensemble is stunning in its vocal variety, mastery. The group held the audience…spellbound with its artistry.” “…in matters of pitch, diction and musical shaping, I’ve never heard finer ensemble singing.” – The Washington Post
These five Leipzig musicians have won a string of international prizes and competitions, including the ECHO Klassik and Supersonic Award. In 2010, they made their Carnegie Hall debut. Their 2014 recording “Madrigals of Madness” was named a top 10 CD by the New York Times. Naturally at home in the vocal music of the Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic periods, they also explore modern repertoire.
We’re thrilled to help debut their 2015 recording project Christmas Carols of the World, which will shine a spotlight on these timeless and classical creations. Some are sacred, some are secular, and some even humorous and entertaining – all woven in the theme of a popular holiday tradition. Their vocal performance will cover 10 countries and 7 languages. This is their Canadian debut.
Watch Calmus Ensemble perform excerpts from this brilliant new CD featuring carols from Ireland, Sweden. Germany, Russia, ending with a glimpse of their own arrangement of Stille Nacht (Silent Night).
