Full to the brim with infectious vitality, Mendelssohn’s Octet is one of the true life-affirming pinnacles of Western music. Practically inventing the genre of a work for eight strings, the work of the 16-year-old child genius has never been bettered.
Join Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s flagship chamber ensemble for a performance of Mendelssohn’s octet, matched with Brahms’ tender Sextet No 1 and a new octet by contemporary classical British composer Douglas Weiland.
