Info for Luther Collage

The Hymns of Martin Luther - in arrangements by Bach, Schein, Reger, Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Pärt and others. Calmus has assembled collages out of the diverse Luther hymns. These chorale motets lead from the Middle Ages via the Renaissance and the Romantic period into the Modern age and illuminate the hymns from the most diverse viewpoints. Completely new combinations of the various epochs and styles come into being. They affect one another, they complement one another, they contrast with one another. From the individual motets, cantata movements, parody masses, organ music, hymns and Gregorian chorales, building blocks have emerged out of which whole new sound constructions have been assembled. A unique and varied program and a great homage to the reformer Martin Luther.

Calmus Ensemble

Calmus Ensemble
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.

The musicians are tireless in their quest to discover new repertoire. Shaped by the centuries-old tradition of great German boys’ choirs, they are naturally at home in the vocal music of the Renaissance, the Baroque and the Romantic. The music of our own time is also a real passion. In all their ventures, there are frequently interesting partnerships with musicians such as the Lautten Compagney Berlin, the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, Hamburger Ratsmusik and the Frankfurt Radio Bigband. As this often means totally new repertoire in the area of contemporary music, over the years Calmus has commissioned numerous new works from composers including Bernd Franke, Steffen Schleiermacher, Wolfram Buchenberg, Mathew Rosenblum, Bill Dobbins, Michael Denhoff and Harald Banter, and the group has given many world premieres. It goes without saying that they revel in singing pop, folk and jazz, as well as chansons and evergreens from the 1920s.

Part of their work is devoted to encouraging the up-and-coming generation, so teaching and workshops are part of their regular schedule, both at home in Leipzig and on their travels. It’s no wonder that Calmus, with its unique line-up of soprano, countertenor, tenor, baritone and bass, is gaining more and more fans worldwide.
