Octets by Franz Schubert and Jörg Widmann
Schubert’s Octet is one of the works with which the composer wanted to “prepare the way for the grand symphony”. And so here the delightful charm of the divertimento is mixed with an expression of orchestral grandeur. We also hear the multifaceted Octet of Jörg Widmann which is clearly inspired by Schubert. In addition to members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the performers include the violinist Christian Tetzlaff, Artist in Residence in the 2014/2015 season.
