Anthony Marwood, the Heath Quartet and three other wonderful chamber musicians open with Mendelssohn’s Octet, a miraculous product of his mid-teens.
Enescu’s fine String Octet also dates from the Romanian composer’s teenage years. ‘I wore myself out trying to make work a piece of music divided into four segments of such length that each of them was likely at any moment to break’, Enescu later recalled.
