Oxalys: ‘Appalachian Spring’

groundbreaking, subdued

Filmic chamber music

A great deal of beautiful chamber music lies forgotten because it is written for unusual combinations of instruments. Fortunately we have the Belgian ensemble Oxalys

The highlight of their American programme is Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring for 13 instruments.
