Schubert’s Octet for strings and winds bears witness to a new creative force during a dark chapter of the composer’s life, when he was haunted by illness. Powerfully imaginative, interweaving joy and apprehension, the work pays homage to Beethoven’s septet while revealing a poetic and lyrical language in which the dawn of Romanticism emerges. For this recording, the Modigliani Quartet is joined by soloists Sabine Meyer, Bruno Schneider, Dag Jensen and Knut Erik Sundquist.
