The Chamber Ensemble performs the opening concert of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields’ 2015/16 London season at Kings Place, with Schubert’s chamber masterwork the focal point. Intended as a composition to complement Beethoven’s celebrated E flat Septet, Schubert’s Octet enjoys enduring popularity in its own right for the many gorgeous melodies and unexpected harmonic twists it contains. Allied with Rossini’s playful String Sonata and Mozart’s genial Horn Quintet, it makes for an evening of chamber music at its finest.
