The instruments

After many years of research and experimentation, Jean-Louis Sajot has brought together a group of talented musicians who, like himself, wish to devote the major part of their time to the magnificent chamber music repertoire. The day to day work of a permanent team, the recordings and numerous concerts have enabled the Octuor de France to create a sonority and a personality all of its own.
