About the Octet
The octet has performed over 70 world premieres, most of which were especially written for and dedicated to the octet. Upon hearing the premiere of his first work for the octet, Arvo Pärt, who has become a close friend of the octet, said: ” This octet is a piece of gold, I’ve discovered this ensemble ten years too late.”
