Schubert I - 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.
