    Stratford Summer Music presents

    Vanny Hu & Enescu’s Octet for Strings

    To start our video offering, the exceptionally talented young cellist Vanny Hu performs movements from J. S. Bach’s Fourth Suite.  Vanny’s performance is followed by the all-engrossing Octet for Strings by Georges Enescu.  If you know the term “barn-burner” as it applies to classical music, this is definitely one of those!
