This unboundedly fantastic interpretation is now also available as an Audio DVD in a surround version; here the lover of amazing musical experiences can follow a most original staging of this incredible event. The wind trio is assembled in a triangle (left, right, behind), the viola is opposite the listener – at twelve o’clock so to speak – whilst the violins one and two are slightly to the left front and back, cello and double bass similarly slightly to the right. In the centre of this cleverly designed directing we find a completely new approach to symphonic chamber music unrivalled in early Romantic music. Following on the outstanding CD and DVD of Beethoven′s Septet op. 20 and Octet op. 103, the ensemble′s unique quality is confirmed once again.

Jean-Marc's Multi-Channel Recordings Reviews (01/01/2009):

I am probably missing some of the words necessary to describe this recording. So I will start by simply saying FANTASTIC WORK TACET! (...)
This interpretation of Schubert Octet is dynamic and refined and compares well with other classic interpretation such as the ones by the Vienna Octet. more...

Audiophile Audition (01/01/2004):

"The youthful Camerata Freden, Festival Ensemble of the Freden International Music Festival, sets a new standard for how Schubert’s famous Octet works, and whether the traditional notion of Viennese charm is a prerequisite to its interpretive success.
The answer to the latter question is a definite no, as the eight musicians led by violinist Adrian Adlam (also Artistic Director of the Festival) show that the music need not fawn and curtsey as each of the famous themes make their appearances. more...
