Nash Ensemble - Around Schubert (3/4)

The Nash Ensemble perform Schubert's Quartettsatz alongside his songs, and an aria and octet for strings, clarinet and horns by Louis Spohr. Presented by Hannah French.

Hannah French continues a week of chamber music by Schubert and his contemporaries performed by the Nash Ensemble as part of their recent Wigmore Hall series 'Around Schubert'. Today, Schubert's dynamic Quartettsatz starts the programme, followed by a selection of his songs alongside an aria by his contemporary, Spohr. The Nash Ensemble end the programme with Louis Spohr's highly virtuosic Octet for strings, clarinet and horns.
