The Berlin Phil Series: Philharmonic Octet

This episode of the Berlin Phil Series brought the familiar, the new and the unknown together in a captivating way. Schubert’s Octet for five strings and three winds, considered the founding work of this instrumental genre of chamber music, was programmed alongside a world premiere by Toshio Hosokawa and an almost forgotten piece for the same formation by Hugo Kaun. All three works were performed by one of the orchestra’s most venerable chamber music formations: the Philharmonic Octet Berlin.
