A collaboration by musicians from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the National Arts Centre Orchestra will pair Felix Mendelssohn’s miraculous String Octet, his own favorite composition written at the age of 16, with Johannes Brahm’s first sextet for strings. Both these works are among the greatest pieces of music written for strings. The Players are among the best string players in Canada.
