Franz Schubert conjured the carefree melodiousness of his radiant ‘Trout’ Quintet as a 22-year-old kicking back with companions on a countryside holiday.
It’s music of good times and warm friendship – just the piece for Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev at the keyboard to join Orchestra colleagues in this intimate afternoon of chamber music.
Schubert rose to the challenge of incorporating one of his best-loved song tunes into his charming Quintet – and the young Beethoven did something similar with a hit Viennese opera number in his sunny Trio. To open the concert, marvel at the sparkling inventiveness and vivid operatic drama Rossini creates for his bassy twosome in his duelling Duo.
