Join us as we launch our Winter 2021 virtual series with an All-Schubert program! The event includes a brief introduction by Artistic Director Marcus Thompson and new video performance of Schubert’s beloved Trout Quintet and String Trio.
Schubert’s String Trio in B-flat major comprises four brief movements in moderate tempos. Traditional Viennese elegance infuses the work, while passing chromaticism and ornamental figuration lend a distinctive Schubertian sound. Virtuosic flourishes in the violin and an extended viola solo in the Minuet are among the work’s highlights.
The heart of Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A major is its fourth movement, a set of variations on his song “The Trout.” Composed during a happy summer spent in Upper Austria, the quintet conveys an idyllic, serene atmosphere and remains one of Schubert’s most beloved chamber works.
