Program Book

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.

A mighty work for a chamber ensemble, Schubert wrote his Octet when he was taking a break from writing songs and symphonies to explore this intimate form.

True to his talent for creating great melodies, the Octet encompasses a variety of moods across six glowing movements. It radiates warmth, from jaunty dance tunes to heartfelt, lyrical moments.

Led by Concertmaster Andrew Haveron, it’s the perfect piece to showcase the impressive range of the Sydney Symphony’s musicians, and Schubert provides a moment for each instrument to shine.
