Composer: Franz Schubert
Format: Sheet Music | Parts

Franz Schubert's Octet In F major D 803 for Clarinet (B flat/C), Bassoon, Horn (F/C), 2 Violins, Viola, Violoncello and Double Bass.

This composition was modelled on Beethoven’s Septet op. 20, whose Divertimento character and six-part layout were adopted by Schubert, although he merely expanded the instrumentation by adding a second Violin.

In a letter he numbered his octet amongst the chamber music works with which he desired to blaze a “path to the great symphony”. It can no longer be ascertained whether the composition was commissioned by Count Ferdinand Troyer, who had a musical salon in Vienna and played the Clarinet. We only know that Schubert composed the work at the beginning of 1824, taking only a few weeks to do so and that it was performed at Troyer’s shortly afterwards. Today it is one of the most popular larger chamber music works.
