After 8 long months, the principal string players of The Metropolitan Orchestra present afternoon of glorious music, performing Mendelssohn’s remarkable String Octet which was composed when he was just 16 years of age. From the almost minimalist unison textures of the work’s Scherzo, to the eight-part fugato of its Finale, Mendelssohn created a masterwork unlike anything prior.
Following the String Octet will be Karl Jenkins’ Palladio, which is inspired by Italian architect Andrea Palladio. The three movement work embodies the Renaissance celebration of harmony and order. Two of Palladio’s hallmarks are mathematical harmony and architectural elements borrowed from classical antiquity, a philosophy which is reflected in Jenkins wonderfully colourful composition.
