Hear string octets from both Mendelssohn and Enescu in this extended early evening concert (finishing around 7.15pm).

The Enescu octet is rarely heard and highly regarded as one of the most complex and virtuoso pieces for string ensemble. Paired with Mendelssohn’s Octet, this makes for a very unique and extravagant programme performed by hand-picked musicians from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Strings Department.
