Oxalys was founded in 1993 at the Brussels Conservatory of Music. Since then the ensemble has developed into one of the most esteemed professional chamber music groups in Flanders. It performs on some of the world’s finest platforms and plays at the most prestigious festivals. The ensemble’s primary aim is to relate the European cultural story since the Enlightenment, with the most exacting of standards and with the greatest directness. Oxalys also want to musically interpret the connections and contrasts across borders and eras in this story. The ensemble varies, depending on the repertoire, from duo to nonet.
