Mozart Clarinet Quintet
Schubert Octet in F D803
Pre-concert talk with David Bednall at 6.45pm
Schubert’s celebrated masterpiece, the Octet for wind and strings, takes centre stage in this New Year concert, alongside Mozart’s sublimely beautiful Clarinet Quintet, one of the most well-loved works in the chamber music repertoire, celebrated through the centuries for its exquisitely-crafted melodic lines.
The octet also enjoys enduring popularity for its sumptuous melodies and harmonic twists and turns. Commissioned by a famous clarinettist of the day in 1824, it was written to complement Beethoven’s Septet, and is considered to be one of the greatest chamber works ever composed.
