Piano Quintet in A Major, D. 667 by Franz Schubert

This week's download features Franz Schubert's Piano Quintet in A Major, D. 667, known as the Trout Quintet. Schubert composed this work in 1819, an estimated two years after he completed his lied "Die Forelle" ("The Trout") set to the texts of Schubart. The fourth movement of this quintet is a set of variations on the melody of "Die Forelle." This recording is performed by Jean-Jacques Kantorow (violin), Vladimir Mendelssohn (viola), Philippe Muller (cello), Duncan McTier (double bass) and Jacques Rouvier (piano).
Authorized users can access the full score to the Trout Quintet, available in Alexander Street's Music Online: Classical Scores Library.
