The Calmus Ensemble is on a musical journey of discovery: With "Folk Songs," the Leipzig vocal quintet invites you on a journey around the world. From Ireland and England to Scandinavia, Russia, Taiwan and all the way to Ecuador! And all this with only five singers? Yes, indeed! Folk songs from five continents can be heard on the album, the spectrum ranging from traditional, simple settings to highly virtuosic new arrangements made especially for Calmus. This recording is part of the prize-winning "LIEDERPROJEKT". 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 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 it's debut at Carnegie Hall, New York.
