04Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert20150703

Tom Redmond continues our week of performances recorded at the 2015 Aldeburgh Festival. Today's programme features just one work - Schubert's Octet in F. The piece was commissioned by one Ferdinand Troyer, a nobleman and amateur clarinettist who asked Schubert to write a companion piece to Beethoven's popular Septet. Schubert obliged with a score in the same six-movement form. Athough written in 1824, it was not published for a further 65 years. Today's performers are soloists from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra who enjoyed a three-concert residency at this year's festival.
