|Franz Schubert [1797-1828]|
This fish may be out of water, but it certainly seems right in place in the chamber.
Schubert's "trout" is written for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass and it has five movements. All five movements of this chamber piece are great examples of Schubert's melodic style. This is one of my favorite chamber music pieces.
The smooth, pleasant [sometimes with an edge] fourth and final movements of the "trout" is a nice way to start out the day.
So, turn up the volume, sit back and enjoy some Franz Schubert melodic magic.
