Trout Quintet

At last! The piece I have been waiting for all week. A pleasant romp through Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet. Although I have played this many times, it still has potential to catch me out in places. And it’s remarkably evocative – I find it very hard to play without remembering the times I played it with my grandmother taking the piano part. Music & Memory – I’m sure there’s research potential here.

We coupled this with Mme Farrenc’s second quintet for the same combination (Piano, violin, viola, cello, bass). Like other works of hers that I have sampled, this is eminently playable without too much to worry the bass player.
