In a concert from Snape Maltings, soloists from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra perform Schubert's Octet in F, D803.
Tom Redmond continues our week of performances recorded at the 2015 Aldeburgh Festival. Today's programme features just one work - Schubert's Octet in F. The piece was commissioned by one Ferdinand Troyer, a nobleman and amateur clarinettist who asked Schubert to write a companion piece to Beethoven's popular Septet. Schubert obliged with a score in the same six-movement form. Athough written in 1824, it was not published for a further 65 years. Today's performers are soloists from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra who enjoyed a three-concert residency at this year's festival.
