There is a lot of time to compose when you are stuck at home during the Pandemic of 2020. This is the fifth work I completed under lockdown.:

  1. Trio 803 was completed on April 7, 2020
  2. Kindertodtotenlieder was completed on May 13, 2020
  3. Préludes … Hommage à C.D. was completed on June 5, 2020
  4. Chansons de Maeterlinck was completed on June 20, 2020

I have always been a huge fan of the Mendelssohn Octet for double string quartet. In my search of octets on YouTube I noticed that there were a number of octets that used a double bass instead of a second cello. I thought that configuration would suit what I had in mind for my octet.

Octet for Strings is in five movements.

I. Adagio

II. Allegro

III. Adagio

IV. Allegro TRIO

V. Andantino

Total duration, ca. 22 minutes.
