A perfect blend of sound, precision, lightness, and wit, 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 colors, the joy in performing that the 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. 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.
Shaped by the centuries-old tradition of great German boys’ choirs, the group is at home in the vocal music of the Renaissance, the Baroque, and the Romantic eras. Over the years Calmus has commissioned numerous new works, and given many world premieres. It is no wonder that Calmus, with its unique line-up of soprano, countertenor, tenor, baritone, and bass, is gaining more and more fans worldwide.
