Evening Masterwork: Franz Schubert's Piano Quintet in A Op. 114 “Trout” for November 4, 2022

In 1817, Franz Schubert composed a short song called “The Trout,” which told the story of an onlooker on a riverbank watching a “happy little fish” swimming in the river. Two years later, Schubert incorporated this song into his Piano Quintet in A Major, which was nicknamed the “Trout” Quintet. It’s our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9
