Orquestra Clássica do Sul
Commentator: Rui Pinheiro

Some time ago, a young 16 year old boy decided to write a play for two quartets of strings as a birthday present for his violin teacher. Being this young prodigious Mendelssohn, the result was the wonderful Octet, which by its youthful strength, brilliance and perfection is considered as a true miracle of the nineteenth century music.
The Haydn’s Divertimento also brings some surprises - two string trios dialoguing in different rooms, as if it were an echo!
