The Los Alamos Concert Association presents CALEFAX, a reed quintet, as the fourth concert in its 2012-2013 season. Established 25 years ago, CALEFAX is now in demand worldwide, not least because of their unique instrumentation: oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet, and bassoon.
The five musicians arrange, recompose and interpret music from eight centuries to suit their unique instrumentation. The Amsterdam-based ensemble has won a number of prestigious prizes, and can be heard frequently throughout Europe as well as in Russia, China, India, Turkey, Japan and the United States.
• Oliver Boekhoorn is the oboist and youngest member of CALEFAX. His musical training was at the Hague and Amsterdam conservatories. A member of Cobla la principal d’Amsterdam, he is regularly employed in the principal ensembles and orchestras of the Netherlands. Oliver plays a Marigaux oboe but prefers Bulgheroni for oboe d’amore and cor anglais. In his spare time Oliver flies paragliding over the Dutch coastal dunes.
• Clarinetist Ivar Berix studied with Bas de Jong and George Pieterson and graduated as a Performing Artist with honors. Besides CALEFAX, he also free-lances with the major orchestras of the Netherlands. Ivar plays Reform-Boehm Clarinets, built by Herbert Wurlitzer in 1986, and uses a Heinz Viotto mouthpiece with Van Dooren reeds.
