Upon listening to a renowned cellist of his day, Voltaire is said to have quipped, “Sir, you make me believe in miracles; you turn the ox into a nightingale”. With the belief in miracles, OXINGALE RECORDS brings its blend of imagination, talent and acumen to the realisation of artistic projects revolving around music.
A trailblazing artist’s label since the year 2000, OXINGALE RECORDS is as committed to revelatory interpretations of the canonic repertoire as to riveting performances of works by recent and living composers. Breeding spontaneity in musical expression, OXINGALE RECORDS captures singular moments of collaboration in the stream of classical, contemporary, crossover, jazz and family releases. The offspring of two musical perspectives — those of world-renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz and acclaimed composer Luna Pearl Woolf — their projects take a refreshing approach to the classical tradition, illuminating and vitalising the listening experience. Grammy Award-winning OXINGALE RECORDS gradually unfolds an idiosyncratic but influential body of work.
Having shared ideas and projects for some time, there was no doubt for PENTATONE to join forces with OXINGALE RECORDS. This union brings together two innovative and driven recording companies with long histories of producing reputable records and collaborating with renowned artists.
