“Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra features an impressive line-up of Australian and international soloists possessing technical virtuosity and deep commitment to the music. “Historically informed” might sound overly academic and cerebral, but the players’ approach is in essence joyful and highly expressive.”  Classic Melbourne, May 2018

Berlin-based violinist Jakob Lehmann leads an ensemble of specialist local and international chamber musicians through the expansive sounds and pioneering ideas of New Constellations. The Octet for Strings was written when Mendelssohn was just 16, and illustrates the transformation of performance techniques in the chamber music of the early-Romantic period. Brahms destroyed the nonet version of his Serenade, but based on archives and written accounts this original chamber version has been brought back to life.

Felix Mendelssohn
Octet for Strings in E-flat Major
