OSL ensemble members take on the monumental Octet by Franz Schubert, the composer’s largest scale chamber work. Commissioned in 1824 by amateur clarinetist Count Ferdinand von Troyer of Austria, the piece features unique instrumentation inspired by Beethoven’s Septet: clarinet, horn, bassoon, violins, viola, cello, and double bass. Through six movements and just over an hour of music, Schubert explores the musical possibilities within the structure of a traditional 18-century serenade, transporting the listener from the wild ruggedness of the Scherzo movement to a refined Viennese café in the Theme and Variations.
