Schubert Octet

Nash Ensemble:
Richard Hosford clarinet
Ursula Leveaux bassoon
Richard Watkins horn
Marianne Thorsen violin
Laura Samuel violin
James Boyd viola
Paul Watkins cello
Duncan McTier double bass

Following the storming success of Beethovenís Septet, Schubert was commissioned by clarinettist Count Ferdinand Troyer with the request that he was to write something just like Beethovenís toasted creation. Schubert responded with a work that was similarly bright and light-footed but sought leave to add an extra violin line to form his richly textured Octet.
