Great Malvern Priory, Church St, Malvern WR14 2AY


Beethoven  Septet in Eb Major, Op.20
Sawyers  Octet


English Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players

The English Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players will be performing arguably the finest septet ever written – Beethoven’s Septet in E-flat. Full of youthful charm and immediate appeal, the septet is one of Beethoven’s most celebrated works.

This masterpiece, with its mixture of grandeur, intimacy, virtuosity and informality, will be performed alongside Octet by Philip Sawyers who was appointed the orchestra’s Composer-in-Association in 2015.  The ensemble had the pleasure of recording this work back in April for a future ESO Digital broadcast and are delighted to be sharing this very welcome addition to the repertoire with you.
