Nash Ensemble - Around Schubert (1/4)

The Nash Ensemble perform Schubert's Piano Quintet, nicknamed the 'Trout', and a Fantasy, Variations and Finale by his contemporary, Ignaz Moscheles. Presented by Hannah French.

Hannah French continues a week of chamber music by Schubert and his contemporaries performed by the Nash Ensemble as part of their recent Wigmore Hall series 'Around Schubert'. Today, Schubert's most famous chamber-music work, his exuberant Piano Quintet in A major, nicknamed the 'Trout', is performed alongside Moscheles' Fantasy, Variations & Finale for clarinet, piano and strings.
