MENDELSSOHN Octet  in E flat major Op 20

Now established as one of Britain’s leading chamber groups, the Doric String Quartet have been a cornerstone of WMC’s Artistic programme since 2001. Following contrasting works by Mozart and Bartók, the Quartet will be joined by the Behn Quartet who have been in residence at WMC over the past 12 months for a performance of Mendelssohn’s exuberant Octet for Strings Op 20. Written when the composer was just 16 the work is famed for the fluidity  of its melodies and delicate balance of its various parts.
