Encore: Another Movement From the Schubert Octet

I hope you enjoyed last week's performance of a movement from the Schubert Octet played by a fine ensemble led by Dutch violinist Janine Jansen. As an encore here is the last movement. This is a time of the year to be with family and friends and to be reminded about the meaning of life in terms of one's own religion or tradition. The Schubert Octet is not religious music but it certainly expresses the joy of being alive. Janine Jansen and her colleagues get right to the heart of the matter in a performance that is full of heartfelt sharing between musicians. This performance had me smiling as I watched and listened and long after the last note had sounded. I hope it does the same for you.
