Oxalys & Claire Lefilliâtre Harptrio − Arrangements of Chants d’Auvergne by Joseph Canteloube at Concertgebouw Brugge
Oxalys paint a cosmos full of twinkling timbres and sleek melodies. Annelies Van Parys provides the summery arrangements of Canteloube and Debussy. Her flawless feel for instrumental colour variation undoubtedly comes from her much-mourned teacher Luc Brewaeys. He taught her to turn sounds inside out, to make them shine even brighter. It is no coincidence that the title of Brewaeys' work in this evening’s programme quotes 16th-century polymath Galileo Galilei’s famous words about the Earth: Eppur si muove… And yet it moves.
