The Discovery 8tet
Sunday 3 May
Enesco's octet, completed in 1900 at the age of nineteen, is regarded as one of the most notable successors to Mendelssohn's octet, composed at the remarkable age of sixteen. Written so early in the composers' lives, both works represent the heigh of altruistic idealism in composition and are transcendent in energy and passion. The first of a series of events taking place in the Nolan Gallery.

David says that Marina Abramović 'makes [his] balls shrivel'. We wonder if he'll have the balls to tell her that in person, onstage at the Odeon on the occasion of her major new exhibition at Mona.
