About «résonances»

Two of the world’s finest string quartets combine

to celebrate two great chamber compositions. Mendelssohn’s effervescent yet profound Octet is one of the miracles of the repertoire, written when the composer was just 16. It is paired here with the Romanian prodigy George Enescu’s similarly imaginative Octet, whose finale, a wild waltz, is guaranteed to send you home with a spring in your step.
