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).

U.S. Marshal Service: Yea, right. Forellen has as much to do with trout as the word July has to do with a month on the calender. You're full of it, Mr. Freedman.
