Season Guest Concert: String Octets with the Sarasa Ensemble

October 19, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Felix Mendelssohn’s Octet is one of the most adored chamber music pieces
in the string repertoire, composed by a very precocious and nimble
16-year-old talent.  Rarely performed on original instruments with gut
strings, Sarasa offers a fresh view of this energetic work. The
particularly innovative program includes contrasting elements of sublime
French Baroque music by Marc-Antoine Charpentier (Sonate à 8) with the
soulful expanse of Schnittke’s compelling Collected Songs Where Every
Verse Is Filled with Grief, arranged for string octet.

Rodolfo Richter, Christina Day Martinson, David Wish, Rebecca Huber,
violins; Jenny Stirling, Jason Fisher, violas; Jennifer Morsches, Timothy
Merton, cellos
