The Philharmonic Octet plays Schubert

In March 1824, in the midst of a major life crisis, Franz Schubert wrote one of his most beautiful works: the Octet in F major. It moves the listener with its heart-rending melodies and its folk, dance-like character. The work – according to Schubert – was intended by the composer to “pave the way towards a grand symphony”. An ideal piece for an ensemble such as the Philharmonic Octet, which combines chamber music transparency with symphonic opulence.
