Ludwig Van Beethoven
Septet for winds and strings in E flat major, Opus 20
Octet for winds and strings in F major, D803
Led by Martin Beaver on violin, this Octet includes eminent Canadian musicians Rivka Golani on viola, James Campbell on clarinet, and Joel Quarrington on bass. Beaver led the Tokyo String Quartet until their retirement, and is also a soloist with notable symphonies worldwide. Golani, a virtuosic soloist, is an obvious inspiration to composers, with more than 250 pieces having been written for her. Campbell has performed with Glenn Gould, appeared as soloist with over 50 orchestras, performed in 25 countries, and taught on 5 continents.
A truly unique ensemble performance highlighting Schubert’s great masterpiece —you must not miss.
