For our special event this season, we return to the recently remodeled Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland to host two of the leading European string quartets in a joyous evening of octets.  Rarely presented in the US, the Belcea (“The intelligence and honesty of the playing was as impressive as its energy and vehemence” The New York Times) and Ébène (“A mix of soft elegance, joie de vivre and exquisite tuning — as gorgeous as any ensemble in recent memory” The Strad Magazine) will perform Felix Mendelssohn’s famed Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20 and George Enescu’s seldom-heard Octet in C Major, Op. 7.

Felix Mendelssohn               Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20

George Enescu                     Octet in C Major, Op. 7
