Ermano Wolf-Ferrari was am Italian composer mostly noted for his comic operas. This early work, overflowing with exuberance, is a wonderful companion in our Finale with an old friend. The Schubert Octet always begs to be programmed in the finale but it is necessary to show some restraint or it would turn up every year - but with such a great piece and wonderful combination of instruments, would that be such a bad thing?

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval
