OXALYS REISEN POST

For the 'Verein für musikalische Privataufführungen‘ (Association for private musical performances), founded in 1918 by Arnold Schönberg, numerous chamber versions of great orchestral works of the modern era were created. One of the last of these masterly 'pocket versions' in late autumn 1921, shortly before the end of the association, was the arrangement of Mahler's Lied von der Erde, which was not completed until 1983 by Rainer Riehn. Thanks to its one-of-a-kind repertoire and exquisite performances, Oxalys is warmly welcomed on stages in Belgium and abroad. At the start of 2017, Flemish radio station Klara awarded the ensemble the ‘Klara Music Prize for best Soloist or Ensemble’. Oxalys’s varied and much-celebrated discography is the perfect illustration of the ensemble’s versatility. With recordings of works by amongst others Gustav Mahler, Claude Debussy, Richard Strauss, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Max Reger and Joseph Jongen, it points out its double focus on canonical repertoire on the one hand and lesser explored oeuvres on the other. Eager to look further than its own genre and territory, Oxalys regularly cooperates in theatre productions. It is also concerned with projects of a pedagogical and educational value. Oxalys maintains a partnership with the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and is supported by the Flemish Community.
