Erneuerung : for String Octet
by Paul Sarcich (2021)
A one-movement work in a number of distinct sections, it treats the string octet as a small string orchestra rather than two quartets, exploring the sonorities it can give, and the flxibility of styles available from it.
The title refers to the Oberton Octet's desire to "renew" the String Octet as a recognised chamber ensemble.
Instrumentation: 4 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos.
Duration: 11 min.
Honorary Mention in the Oberton String Octet 2021 International Composition Competition
