  • Franz Schubert: Quintet in A major D 667, Trout Quintet
  • Timo Jouko Herrmann & Marcus Imbsweiler
  • Literature

The so-called Trout Quintet is familiar to most music enthusiasts, but one encounters this enchanting work only extremely rarely in the concert hall because of its uncommon instrumentation. We have the civil servant and amateur cellist Sylvester Paumgartner to thank for the creation of the quintet, who had ordered a work for piano, string trio and double bass from Schubert. At the special request of the commissioner, Schubert inserted a sequence of variations on his song Die Forelle as a supernumerary movement before the finale. One might hardly believe how much interpretive depth this “delicious little song” offers when listening to the light-hearted melody.

Two enthusiasts of music have their say here: Marcus Imbsweiler publishes novels, including stories about composers; Timo Jouko Herrmann is a composer, violinist and guest conductor of the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra.
