Another Octet was loaned for three years to the Conservatory of Music in St Petersburg, Russia, where eight distinguished professionals and professors performed many concerts to standing ovations and enthusiastic reviews with several fine recordings and numerous new compositions resulting.
An Octet spent three years in the Royal College of Music, London where their new sounds were explored and new music composed for them.
This exhibit was set up along with an Octet concert in the Grace Rainey Rogers Auditorium of the museum a year ago in May and will be there at least through September 2003.

 Pro Arte April 2001
Stravinsky related once that the Octet was inspired by a dream he had of a group of instruments playing "some attractive music" which he was unable to recognize or remember the next day.
In fact, the Octet marks Stravinsky's return to sonata form for the first time since his maturity as a composer; it is thus seen as one of the landmarks of his neo-Classical style.
This sort of music has no other aim than to be sufficient in itself.

 Octet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The two best known octets in classical music are probably those by Felix Mendelssohn (which is for a double string quartet) and Franz Schubert (which is for clarinet, bassoon, French horn, violin, viola, cello and double bass).
In music, an octet is a musical ensemble consisting of eight musicians.
Igor Stravinsky also wrote an octet for wind instruments (an unusual grouping of flute, clarinet, two bassoons, two trumpets and two trombones) and Paul Hindemith wrote a lesser known piece for clarinet, bassoon, French horn, violin, two violas, cello and double bass.

 Amazon.com: George Enescu: Octet, Op. 7; Quintet, Op. 29: Music
Like the octet, the quintet does not show as strong an influence of folk music as some of the composer's popular work does, but rather an incredibly detailed design.
The Octet is fairly well known, although I note that another reviewer called it 'one of the great unknown chamber works out there.' Live performances are few because it is difficult getting two string quartets together to play the thing; and when they do get together they typically play everyone's favorite octet, the Mendelssohn.
I found the performance of the octet a bit cold and calculated overall, and Kremer's tempos are extremely conservative in the work's very difficult second movement.

The New-Trad Octet makes its music very easy to get into, and then it often takes listeners to some far-out places.
His recently formed New-Trad Octet is one of these ways, and Chicago jazz fans are far richer in their listening opportunities because Jeff Newell and the New-Trad Octet call Chicago home.

The impetus for the development of the violin octet came in the form of a challenge posed to Hutchins in 1957 by the noted American composer of acoustically spatial music, Henry Brant (b.
Hutchins is best known for her creation of the violin octet, a set of violins in various sizes reminiscent of the Renaissance consort and the 19th-century experiments of Adolphe Sax (1814-1894) who focused on creating a homogeneity of sound in his saxhorn and saxophone families.
The remaining three octets are actively used in performance by the Southern California-based Hutchins Consort and two developing ensembles in Iceland and Denver.

Where the Octet is all ambitious swagger, the Fauréan Quintet is elusive, shy in stating its material, the tonality fugitive, the string-writing in the first of its two movements often engaged in some private conversation over the elliptical piano part, the themes half-glimpsed, like refracted memories of folk song.
The Octet, scored in its original version for double string quartet, is an astonishing masterpiece: a work of breathtaking confidence for a composer only 19 years old.

 Emerson String Quartet
St. Lawrence String Quartet
Mendelssohn’s Octet in fact contains examples of alternating quartets, but goes well beyond Spohr’s basic vision of a double choral style to explore numerous permutations of the eight instruments, almost as if one might analyze the gambits and their implications in a game of chess.
The length and scope of the Octet indeed evinces a certain striving for symphonic monumentality, perhaps evident most dramatically toward the middle of the finale, where Mendelssohn recalls material from the scherzo, a technique obviously derived from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
Written for the birthday of Mendelssohn’s friend and violin teacher, Eduard Rietz, for whom the composer designed the florid first violin part, the Octet not infrequently takes on the style of a concerto, with brilliant virtuoso figurations for the first violinist.

 CD Review of Pablo Ablanedo Octet - From Down There on Fresh Sound New Talent @ jazzreview.com
Pablo Ablanedo is an Argentinian pianist and composer, currently based in Boston, with a debut album on a Spanish label leading an octet composed of men and women form Argentina, Venezuela, Israel and Brooklyn.
There's a discernible Latin American flavor to much of the music here, but it's not the tango rhythm that's most commonly heard in Argentinian music.
Ablanedo draws on folk forms, such as chacarera and zamba, which are less commonly heard, but which are highly adaptable to his blending of influences ranging from Igor Stravinsky to Bill Evans.

 Franz Schubert
In 1824 he tumed to instrumental forms, producing the a Minor and d Minor ('Death and the Maiden') string quartets and the lyrically expansive Octet for wind and strings; around this time he at least sketched, probably at Gmunden in summer 1825, the 'Great' C Major Symphony.
The son of a schoolmaster, he showed an extraordinary childhood aptitude for music, studying the piano, violin, organ, singing and harmony and, while a chorister in the imperial court chapel, composition with Salieri (1808-13).
Frequently gathering for domestic evenings of Schubert's music (later called 'Schubertiads'), this group more than represented the new phenomenon of an educated, musically aware middle class: it gave him an appreciative audience and influential contacts (notably the Sonnleithners and the baritone J.M. Vogl), as well as the confidence, in 1818, to break with schoolteaching.
