Much Ado About Trout
The video is the fourth movement of Die Forellenquintett, popularly known as the Trout: the Piano Quintet in A major by Franz Schubert. The work was composed in 1819, when Schubert was only 22 years old; it was not published, however, until 1829, a year after his death. The piece is known as the Trout because the fourth movement is a set of variations on Schubert's earlier song "Die Forelle" (The Trout).
