Event Details

In his Trout Quintet, Schubert forgoes the usual piano and string quartet lineup, using instead an instrumentation adopted a few years earlier by Johann Nepomuk Hummel. Why Trout though? Quite simply, the fourth movement is a set of variations on Schubert's earlier Lied "Die Forelle" (The Trout), and this because the quintet was written for Sylvester Paumgartner, a wealthy music patron and amateur cellist, who wanted the composer to include a set of variations on the specific song. Starting off the programme however is pianist Yiannis Georgiou with Rachmaninov’s “Musical Moment” no. 1, op. 16, which features a mid-piece pause at roughly the same place as Schubert's first “Musical Moment”, emphasizing the influence which the Austrian composer had on the great Russian romantic.
