  • Strauss Sextet from ‘Capriccio’, Op. 85
  • Piazzolla The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires (highlights)
  • Bruch String Octet in B flat

Max Bruch wrote the world’s best-loved violin concerto, so you’d expect his string chamber music to be rather good. And you’d be absolutely right: his String Octet is lush and gloriously romantic and we don’t know why it isn’t played more often! Discover a real gem today, alongside Piazzolla’s zingy tangos, and the radiant prelude to Richard Strauss’s final opera.
