Drawing its membership from London’s world-renowned chamber orchestra the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, this critically lauded chamber ensemble performs with rare and enviable cohesion and keen musical responsiveness. Led by violinist Tomo Keller, the group performs in varied shapes and sizes, from quartets to octets, and in a wide range of instrumental configurations.
 

“Their sound is sweet and pure; their ensemble work airtight.”

– The Washington Post

PROGRAM

Sally Beamish – Partita: New Work for String Octet

"I love the alchemy between composer and performer, and the unexpected elements that surface as a performer embodies a new work and colors it with their own insights."

Johannes Brahms – Sextet for Strings in G-Major, Op. 36

Johannes Brahms' String Sextet No. 2 in G major, Opus 36 was composed during the years of 1864–1865 and published by the firm of Fritz Simrock. It was first performed in Boston, Massachusetts on October 11, 1866.[1] The work is scored for two violins, two violas, and two celli, and has four movements. The work is characterised by its exotic sounding opening of the first movement, by innovative chord structures and its many contrasts both technical and melodical.
