Key Works in an Octet

When the members of the Belcea Quartet and Quatuor Ébène join forces to form an octet, it promises eightfold chamber music pleasure. The two ensembles interpret compositions by George Enescu and Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. The latter's Octet has secured a reputation as one of the great masterpieces of chamber music. It is considered Mendelssohn's most important youthful work – the very first movement is »a testimony and symbol of radiant youth«, musicologist Eric Werner once noted. The airy Scherzo, which the then 16-year-old composed – inspired by verses from the Walpurgis Night scene in Goethe's Faust – is famous. No less fascinating is the Octet by George Enescu: also a youthful work and a stroke of musical genius, it characterises the individual and visionary style of the Romanian composer.
