Performers from the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra join together for Schubert’s great Octet, the movements of which will be interspersed with songs – as one might have heard in its original context. Widely admired soprano Susanna Phillips ("radiant," New York Times), currently starring in the Met's L'amour de Loin, joins concertmaster David Chan (“compelling,” New York Times), the new principal clarinetist, Inn-Hyuck Cho, and other orchestra principals for the ultimate Schubertiade.
