Julverne were a Belgian classical/folk ensemble that was initially active between the late 1970s and mid-1980s. The revolving door line-up consisted of anywhere from eight to 12 members at a given time. On 1980’s sophomoric A Neuf album, the band were joined by pianist/composer Charles Loos, who had mined similar territory in the acoustic collective Nuit Câline à la Villa Mon Rêve. Praised for its sublime interplay of woodwinds and strings, the album spread the Flemish chamber sound to a wider international audience.
