"...dazzlingly good chamber ensemble…
exuberantly expressive, intimate style…
gorgeously idiomatic playing’
The Times
Schubert Octet
Gramophone February 2011

A new recording of Schubert's Octet comes from the Fibonacci Sequence, a London-based collective consisting, like the Vienna Octet, of some of the city's leading soloists and orchestral players. Quite apart from the advantage - if it is that - of the clinical hush of the digital recording, these players offer a more driven, dynamic performance than the Viennese, and offer no coupling (since they take all repeats, required in today's climate of completeness but not a fashionable thing to do in 1950's Vienna). This is chamber-playing of the highest order, enriched immeasurably by the violin playing of leader Jack Liebeck.
