Australian Octet: Mendelssohn’s Octet

1 October @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm AEDT

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.

Program:
WEILAN – Winterreise for string octet
MENDELSSOHN – Octet in E flat major Op 20.
BRAHMS – Sextet No 1 in B flat major Op 18

Artists:
Musicians of Australian Octet
