Description

Schubert's tuneful and good-natured "Trout" Quintet – based on one of the composer's most successful songs – is a classic of the chamber music repertoire. Schubert had written the song a couple of years earlier and it had already become vastly popular by the time he worked it into his Piano Quintet in A major in 1819. Despite the song's light touch, it is based on rather a tragic poem. A man stands watching a young trout gambolling happily in the stream, but sees it caught by a cunning fisherman who has muddied up the clear waters so the trout cannot see the looming danger. The poet's blood boils with rage, betrayal and helpless pity. This critically acclaimed recording from Emil Gilels (piano), Rainer Zepperitz (double bass) and the Amadeus Quartet has been remastered and pressed on 180g LP for the best possible reproduction and sound quality. "Excellent balance between strings and piano, super-sensitive playing from Gilels" (Gramophone).

Musicians:
Franz Schubert, composer
Emil Gilels, piano
Rainer Zepperitz, double bass
Amadeus Quartet
