Piano Quintet in A D667 'Trout' 2nd movement Schubert Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This Trout Quintet, which has 5 movements, was composed in 1819 when Schubert was on a summer holiday in Steyr, a small town in Upper Austria, with his friend, the singer Johann Vogl. Schubert was 22, and these three months seem to have been one of the most unclouded periods of his short life. He was intoxicated with the "inconceivably lovely" place, and not only with nature and the heady sweetness of pine trees and mountain air but also with the eight pretty girls who were the daughters and friends of a Dr. Schellmann, in whose house he was lodging.

Much music-making took place. A mine-owner, Herr Paumgartner, owned a large house in Steyr, in which he provided a warm welcome to visiting musicians. He suggested that Schubert should write a quintet using violin, viola, cello, double-bass, and piano, and that tune of Schubert's song The Trout, be included.

This second movement is marked Andante, and is simply a succession of three melodies, spun out and modulating from E major to F sharp minor for the second, and to D major for the third. This exact half of the movement comes to an end on a G, pauses, turns the G into the leading note of A flat major and the whole process is gone through again at a different level: A flat, A, and dropping home to F.
