John Ireland: Sextet for piano, clarinet, horn & strings

Olivier Messiaen: Quatour pour la fin du temps

Ernst von Dohnanyi sextet for piano, clarinet, horn & strings

Vaughan Williams quintet for clarinet, horn and piano trio

The second half will be taken up with Franz Schubert's octet in F (selected movements)
