Schubert's seminal chamber composition, the Piano Quintet in A major, D667, commonly known as The Trout or Die Forelle, is certainly one of the greatest pieces of music ever penned. Its rich textures and lovely melody create an unforgettable musical experience. Its celebration of nature's beauty stems from a summer trip in the Austrian Alps which inspired the young Schubert to rework a song into this complex chamber-piece. Composed of five alternating movements, The Trout uses unique orchestration (substituting a double bass for the second violin) and gives special emphasis to the piano as well. But all the instruments take an equal role, and this may also be a reason for the piece's eternal popularity. The Trout instantly brings to mind the calm serenity of the summer mountain air, and its sparkling melody and gentle poignancy leave a particularly happy feeling in both player and listener. It is a joy-filled piece but at the same time is filled with a serene quality that makes it one of the most exhilarating pieces for any musician to play, and one of the most important compositions for any musician to learn. This Music Minus One edition gives you that opportunity, in the comfort of your own home. Contains a high-quality printed solo part with informative liner notes, and digitally remastered compact disc with accompaniments, indexed for ease of practice. Accompaniment: Harriet Wingreen, piano; The Classic String Quartet
