Schubert’s Octet is one of chamber music’s great masterpieces, a profound musical journey perfectly balanced by a pair of deliciously witty 20th century works, all glorious showcases for the Academy’s winds and strings.

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble
“An ensemble of first-rate musicians, technically superb, generously expressive, and obviously enjoying themselves.” - Dallas Morning News
The Academy of St Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble
The Academy Chamber Ensemble was formed in 1967, drawing its membership from the world-renowned chamber orchestra the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which was itself founded by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 and is currently led by Music Director Joshua Bell. The purpose behind the formation of the Chamber Ensemble was to perform the larger scale chamber music repertoire with players who customarily worked together, instead of the usual string quartet with additional guests. Drawn from the principal players of the orchestra and play-directed by Academy Director / Leader Tomo Keller, the Chamber Ensemble now performs in multiple configurations from wind trios to string octets. Its touring commitments are extensive and include regular tours of Europe and North America, whilst recording contracts with Philips Classics, Hyperion, and Chandos have led to the release of over thirty CDs.
