Trout Quintet & the Art of Song

Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet, with its infectious melodies and darting rhythms, has been called “the happiest work in the world.” You’ll also hear the charming song that gave the quintet one of its main themes, together with the bittersweet “Trockne Blumen” and more of Schubert’s beloved songs. The "Trockne Blumen” variations are a tour de force for flute and piano showcasing the composer’s special talent for mixing light and dark moods.  

The museum's restaurant, The Norm, will be serving specials inspired by the performance. Ticket holders receive a 10% discount to The Norm on performance dates. To make reservations, visit thenormbkm.com/reservations and mention you are seeing the show.
