Schubert Octet in F Major D803

Hull Chamber Music and the University of Hull are delighted to bring this chamber ensemble from the Royal Northern Sinfonia to the newly refurbished Middleton Hall, where they will treat us to a varied programme, featuring Schubert’s beautiful Octet.

Royal Northern Sinfonia, Orchestra of Sage Gateshead, is the UK’s only full-time chamber orchestra. Founded in 1958, RNS has built a world-wide reputation for the North East through the quality of its music-making and the immediacy of the connections the musicians make with audiences. The orchestra regularly flies the flag for the region at the BBC Proms, Edinburgh Festival and further afield, last year touring to Brazil and in Europe.

There is no better chamber orchestra in Britain.
