  • Description

    Three delightful facets of a flourishing and inspiring, independent musical culture, captured as always with virtuosity by Oxalys. The outstanding Belgian chamber music ensemble Oxalys dedicates itself here to three American masterpieces in the original chamber music instrumentation: from the great American classic Aaron Copland with his ballet Appalachian Spring to the mythical Shaker Loops by minimal music icon John Adams (here in the original, rarely heard string septet version) to the funky and groovy Meeelaan by jazz idol Wynton Marsalis.
