  • About This Album

    The CD of this album is available to purchase at ArkivMusic.

    The Boston Symphony Chamber Players perform Schubert’s symphony-length Octet in F major, a piece inspired by Beethoven’s Septet. The Octet was unusual in that it made the clarinet the leading wind instrument and followed a six, rather than four, movement structure, harking back to an 18th-century tradition. “Shubert’s music,” says the New York Times, “creates a magical sense of discovery.”
