Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra

New Constellations in Newcastle


Berlin-based violinist Jakob Lehmann leads an ensemble of specialist local and international chamber musicians through the expansive sounds and pioneering ideas of New Constellations. The Octet for Strings was written when Mendelssohn was just 16, and illustrates the transformation of performance techniques in the chamber music of the early-Romantic period. Brahms destroyed the nonet version of his Serenade, but based on archives and written accounts this original chamber version has been brought back to life.
“This was a radiant performance with the pared back texture allowing the many individual lines and unique colours of the specialised instruments and their players, to shine.” SoundsLikeSydney
