In this series of chamber music concerts, the audience will experience the orchestra in a different format. The orchestra will perform in a smaller group, enabling the audience to get closer to the musicians. The afternoon concerts are the Norwegian National Opera Orchestra's own concerts, where the musicians perform their personal musical favourites.
In January, the musicians will perform Mozart's piano quintet, which is regarded by many to be one of his most beautiful – a view that was also held by the composer himself. The strings are allowed to shine and frolic through the masterpiece of Mendelssohn's octet, which illustrates the breadth and depth of what can be achieved with a string ensemble.
