    Schubert Cycle II
    Quintet D. 667 « The Trout »
    Quintet for two cellos op. posth. 163 D. 956

    Approximate running time
    1st part: 40mn - Intermission: 20mn - 2nd part: 45mn

    One of Schubert’s best-known scores, The Trout quintet, is a true ode to joy in a major key suffused with sunshine. It explores a virtually unique instrumental formation and the five-movement divertimento form, whose freedom of expression is a direct descendant of the Lied. By contrast, the Quintet in C, written for a string quartet with additional cello, is one of Schubert’s darkest and most poignant works. It was completed two months before the musician’s death and premiered posthumously. Two magnificent facets of chamber music composition by this Romantic genius.
