Octet in F major, D803


The Fibonacci Sequence


One of Britainís most foremost chamber ensembles, The Fibonacci Sequence, perform the sublime masterpiece, the Octet in F by Franz Schubert.

Written as a commission and modelled on Beethovenís Septet, Schubertís Octet in F takes the form of a large scale divertimento Ė a piece to be listened to as recreation, not too demanding, not too serious. Composed in March 1824, it is the largest in scale of Schubertís chamber works, with scoring for clarinet, bassoon, horn, two violins, viola, cello and double bass.

Schubertís gift for melody and for brilliant yet delicate decoration shines on this disc, highlighted by the voice of the solo violin as it traverses the myriad moods of this sublime masterpiece with the clarinet and fellow members of this distinguished ensemble.
