Repertoire

 

The Classical Repertoire

Consisting of the most famous works for the octet genre, this list includes pieces by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, George Enescu and Dmitri Shostakovich, as well as other works from our repertoire.


The Soloistic Repertoire

The Oberton String Octet can also function as a reduced chamber orchestra, in order to accompany a soloist/solo work with voice, piano or any other instrument. This kind of concert functions as well in a large concert hall as it does in smaller, more intimate venues, depending on the needs of the public or organisation.


‘Homeland Melodies’

Popular traditional melodies from all over the world are arranged by the Oberton String Octet, a concept which arose from the diversity found within the ensemble itself.


The Sacred Music Repertoire

No other instrument displays the qualities of the human voice as well as a string instrument. The Oberton String Octet brings everything from the motets of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Bruckner to various other choir works into a chamber music setting.


The Baroque Repertoire

The Oberton String Octet also delves into the world of the Baroque, performing well-known works for string settings such as Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, etc.


The Latin Music Repertoire

The fiery Tangos of Astor Piazzolla and Carlos Gardel, arranged in new and unusual ways, take the audience to another musical world in this concert, which is a celebration of the greatest traditional and classical Latin-American music.


The ‘Light’ Repertoire

The Octet plays popular melodies from the worlds of Opera, Viennese Waltzes, music from the Weimar Republic and all sorts of golden oldies. This concert concept fits well to a variety of performance environments, including formal events such as New Year's concerts, corporate functions, weddings, banquets and various other events.


The Orchestral Repertoire

Sometimes less is more. The Oberton String Octet plays string orchestra works such as those of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Pjotr Iljitsch Tschaikowski, Antonín Dvořák and many more.
