Last season, the West-Eastern Divan Ensemble made its acclaimed Pierre Boulez Saal debut performing Felix Mendelssohn’s String Octet. Now the musicians return to present one of the genre’s most significant later works composed by George Enescu. The program also features different combinations of instruments in duos by Jörg Widmann, Dvořák’s Op. 74 Terzetto, and Hindemith’s Trauermusik commemorating the death of King George V of England, with Michael Barenboim taking on the solo viola part.
