St Magnus Octets with the Edinburgh Quartet

  • St Magnus Cathedral Kirkwall Orkney (map)

Join us in the round as we come together with the wonderful Edinburgh Quartet for two rarely heard octets. The programme pairs Shostakovich's young (and ever so slightly bonkers!) octet with Svendsen's critically acclaimed romantic masterwork. Youthful exuberance and full-blooded romance – sounds like an evening well spent!

Alasdair Nicolson  Quartet No. 3 “Slanting Rain”
Shostakovich   Octet
Janáček  Quartet No. 1 “Kreutzer Sonata”
Svendsen   Octet in A, Op. 3
