‘Rich, impassioned, and faultlessly realised, it’s a thrilling example of HIP with all the right strings attached.’ The Age
Berlin-based violinist Jakob Lehmann leads an ensemble of specialist local and international chamber musicians through the expansive sounds and pioneering ideas of New Constellations.
The Octet for Strings was written when Mendelssohn was just 16, and illustrates the transformation of performance techniques in the chamber music of the early-Romantic period. Brahms destroyed the nonet version of his Serenade, but based on archives and written accounts this original chamber version has been brought back to life.
Join the artists for a meet and greet in the ground floor foyer following the concert.
