Ensemble Prisma Wien presents the Octet, along with a lively version of the Marche militaire, in a historically informed style, and the extraordinary production values of Camerata make this recording a pure delight. The strings have a marvelously clean tone that shows almost no vibrato but ample brilliance, and the period sonorities of the winds are distinctive in their timbres and clear in articulation.

Prisma Wie. stands for genuine musical enthusiasm, artistic vision and truthfulness! In optics, a prism (Prisma in German) refracts incident light into its colour elements and presents it in its purest and most beautiful form – a rainbow. Prisma Wien is able to refer to a lively history of both domestic and international concert activity and has performed at such festivals as Styriarte, Carinthischen Sommer, Klangfrühling, OsterKlang Wien, and in such halls as the Wiener Musikverein, the Wiener Konzerthaus, the Philharmonie Luxenbourg and in Wigmore Hall in London. The live recording of Franz Schubert’s Octet D 803 was a part of a series of concerts performed on period instruments. Another artistic focus of the group are great works of the baroque such as Johann Sebastian Bach’s Mass in b minor and the St. John Passion or Georg Friederich Handel’s Messiah.

Consisting of six movements, the Octet takes almost an hour to perform. Adagio – Allegro – Più allegro. Allegro vivace – Trio – Allegro vivace. Andante – variations. Un poco più mosso – Più lento.
