The Schneider Concerts presents Calmus Vocal Ensemble from Leipzig

Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm

The Auditorium, Room A106, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

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 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, 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.

Hailed in the New York Times as "one of the best deals in town for lovers of classical music," the 57-year-old Schneider Concerts chamber music series presented the New York debuts of Peter Serkin, the Guarneri String Quartet, and TASHI. Yo-Yo Ma and Murray Perahia performed here before they were well-known.
