The Trout

by Seraphim Trio with Jacqueline Cronin and David Campbell

ABC Classics presents Schubert's much-loved Trout Quintet, one of the most popular chamber music pieces of all time.

Schubert, inspired by the surroundings of a summer trip in the Austrian Alps, used material from his earlier song Die Forelle (The Trout, D550) as the basis for this Quintet. Composed in five movements, The Trout is unusual in its scoring: rather than the usual piano quintet line-up of piano and string quartet, the quintet is written for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass. The resulting transparency of texture and infectious melodies instantly bring to mind the calm serenity of summer mountain air and the 'darting' piano accompaniment in the fourth movement vividly conjures up that wriggling trout!
