MENDELSSOHN OCTET

& FARRENC NONET

 

More important than the visual signals was what you couldn’t see but feel – liberating intensity with which these musicians listen to one another.”

PROGRAM

Concert Duration: 1 hour

LOUISE FARRENC Nonet in E-flat Major, Op. 38

MENDELSSOHN Octet in E-Flat Major, Op. 20

The muse bestowed many kisses on Mendelssohn in his short life, but surely none sparked so brightly as the one that spurred the sixteen-year-old prodigy toward his effervescent Octet for Strings. For the pianist and composer Louise Farrenc, one inspired work of chamber music for winds and strings vaulted her, against all odds, to the top of French society.

Best New Classical Albums

“These performances of Mendelssohn’s piano concertos by Jan Lisiecki, former Gramophone Young Artist of the Year, are wonderful, rich in colour (and shade) and virtuosity.

The chamber-like sonorities and intricate interplay – surely the result of this being a conductor-less ensemble – are an endless delight…”

– Harriet Smith, Gramophone
