Schubert – Octet
Schubert’s Octet is a masterpiece of melody, colour and good humour, surpassing even Beethoven’s Septet, on which it was modelled, in its inventiveness. The Endellion Quartet is joined by four colleagues for this elegant and buoyant work, where moments of sublime melancholy occasionally peer through the music’s joyousness. Used as a Festival venue for the first time, St Martin-on-the-Hill is described as a ‘pre-Raphaelite gem’ by Pevsner, and contains important work by William Morris, Madox Browne, Rosetti and Burne-Jones.
Coffee/tea/soft drinks and biscuits served from 10am - 10.45am.
