Zagrebački ansambl flauta (ZAF) osnovan je 2012. Jezgru sastava čini  kvartet flauta, ali se ovisno o djelima broj izvođača može povećavati bez  ograničenja. Ovaj jedinstveni ansambl okuplja već iskusne izvođače, mlade  umjetnike i studente flaute, pružajući tako mladima rijetku priliku da steknu  dragocjeno koncertno iskustvo i prošire vlastiti repertoar uz potporu iskusnih  kolega.

Sve glazbenice obrazovale su se na različitim visokoškolskim glazbenim  ustanovama i usavršavale u zemlji i inozemstvu. ZAF osobitu pozornost  posvećuje izvedbi djela domaćih skladatelja, potičući tako nastajanje novih  skladbi. Za ansambl su skladali Miljenko Prohaska, Tomislav Uhlik, Alfi  Kabiljo, Ivan Josip Skender, Bruno Vlahek, Gordan Tudor, Tibor Szirovicza,  Ivana Kiš, David Mastikosa i Branimir Rezić.

Repertoar ansambla čini široka lepeza djela te osim klasičnog repertoara  prilagođenog ovoj formaciji, uključuje ponajviše djela skladatelja 20. i 21.  stoljeća, koji koriste izrazito napredne sviračke tehnike kreirajući tako  fascinantne nove zvukovne krajolike.

Kroz protekle tri koncertne sezone tematski osmišljenih ciklusa Tri godišnja  doba ZAF ima iza sebe zavidan broj praizvedenih skladbi, kao i koncerata  diljem Hrvatske i inozemstva (Francuska, Austrija, Slovenija, Slovačka,  Češka, Španjolska, Srbija, Makedonija, Grčka).

The Zagreb Flute Ensemble (ZAF) was founded in 2012. Flute quartet is  the basis of this ensemble, but depending on the arrangement, the number  of performers is unlimited. ZAF brings together experienced musicians,  young artists and flute students, providing young people a rare opportunity  to gain valuable stage experience and expand their repertoire with the  support of professional colleagues.

The members received education from various music academies and  actively improved their musical skills in the country and abroad. ZAF gives  special attention to compositions written by Croatian composers. ZAF’s  repertoire makes a wide range of works and, alongside the classical repertoire adapted to this group, mainly includes compositions of the 20th and 21st centuries, using very advanced performing techniques,  creating fascinating new sound landscapes.

Throughout the last three concert seasons themed Three Seasons they  added an impressive number of first performances, as well as concerts  all over the country and abroad (Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, The Czech  Republic, Spain, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece).

Kalamos kvintet
Reed kvintet je sastav drvenih puhačkih glazbala koji koriste jezičak ili pisak (engl. reed). To su oboa, klarinet, saksofon, bas-klarinet i fagot, uz njihove srodne varijante. Sastav se pojavljuje na svjetskoj glazbenoj sceni prilično nedavno (sredinom 1980-ih). Novi tip ansambla uskoro dobiva priznanje ozbiljne kritike, a ugledni ga časopis Times proglašava najboljim novim glazbenim formatom na svijetu.

Kalamos kvintet je prvi i jedinstveni takav sastav u široj regiji. Osnovan je 2013. godine u Zagrebu, a premijerne je nastupe održao u Maloj koncertnoj dvorani Vatroslava Lisinskog te u foyeru Hrvatskog narodnog kazališta u Zagrebu uz odlične reakcije publike. Slijedi niz uspješno ostvarenih recitala na ljetnim manifestacijama i festivalima duž Jadrana (Omiš, Rovinj, Sinj, Solin, Split, itd.). Članovi kvinteta često surađuju s mladim skladateljima u Hrvatskoj i inozemstvu te ih tako potiču na širenje koncertnog repertoara suvremene muzike za
ovakav tip ansambla. Dosad su ostvarili niz praizvedbi na festivalima suvremene glazbe, od kojih se ističu Dani Vlade Miloševića – Banja Luka, 2017. i MAG festival – Split, 2014. Usporedno s tim, Kalamos njeguje izvođenje glazbe raznih povijesnih stilova (od renesanse do 20. stoljeća) te vlastitim aranžmanima istražuje bogate mogućnosti ovog neobičnog sastava. Nastupi su izazvali odličnu reakciju domaće i strane publike, ali i dobili visoke ocjene kritike. Članovi kvinteta redom su vrsni glazbenici: Katarina Grubić (oboa, engleski rog), Yaroslav Sadovyy (klarineti), Bernard Homan (saksofoni), Rude Mimica (bas klarinet) i Matko Smolčić (fagot).

Kalamos Quintet
A reed quintet is a group of reed instruments consisting of oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet, bassoon, and their related variants. It appeared on the international musical scene not so long ago, in the mid-eighties. The new type of musical ensemble soon met with critical acclaim, and The Times went so far as to call it the best musical format on the planet.

The Kalamos Quinet is the first and only such ensemble in the broader region. It was founded in Zagreb in 2013. Its first appearances took place at the Vatroslav Lisinski Small Hall and in the lobby of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, both with highly enthusiastic audience reactions, which was followed by numerous successful
concerts at various summer musical events and festivals along the Croatian Adriatic coast (Omiš, Rovinj, Sinj, Solin, Split, etc.). The Quintet members often collaborate with young composers from Croatia and abroad, thus encouraging them to expand the contemporary concert repertoire for this type of ensemble. They first performed quite a number of pieces at contemporary music festivals so far, such as Days of Vlado S. Milošević – Banja Luka, 2017, and MAG Festival – Split, 2014. At the same time, the Kalamos Quintet performs music from various periods and musical styles (from the Renaissance to the 20th century) and explores rich possibilities of this unusual group of instruments thanks to their own musical arrangements. Their concerts were met with excellent reactions of both national and international audiences, as well as earned high critical acclaim. All the Quintet members are outstanding musicians: Katarina Grubić (oboe, English horn), Yaroslav Sadovyy (clarinets), Bernard Homan (saxophones), Rude Mimica (bass clarinet) and Matko Smolčić (bassoon).
