ROctet plays a beloved and wonderful octet in the chamber music series of the MCO

Two concertmasters, two first violinists, two violists and two cellists from the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra joined forces in 2016 and have since formed the only permanent string octet in the Netherlands: ROctet. In addition to perhaps the most beloved octet ever written, that of Felix Mendelssohn, we are introduced to the wonderful music of Woldemar Bargiel (1828-1897), contemporary and brother-in-law of Robert Schumann.
