Schubert: Fantasie in D minor, D940, for four hands at piano

Mendelssohn: Octet Op. 20 – arr. for four hands at piano and string quartet

Schubert wrote some of the greatest music for four hands at piano. Tonight we hear two excellent examples. The Mendelssohn Octet is a perennial favourite and has been heard at the Festival before – but never in this arrangement, for string quartet and four hands at piano.
