Building a Library: David Owen Norris joins Andrew to explore recordings of Schubert's Trout Quintet

The Trout Quintet is Schubert's Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667. It was composed in 1819, when he was 22 years old. Its joie de vivre and infectious melodies have made this piece one of the treasures of the chamber music repertoire. Rather than the usual piano quintet line-up of piano and string quartet, the Trout Quintet is written for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass.
