Product Description

Amazon.com

This "Trout" is a treat, served whole with playing that combines rhythmic drive and melting beauty in well-balanced proportions. Renaud Capucon's tender, caressing violin in the first movement's development section is wonderful, and the first Andante has the same exemplary qualities. Add a playfully energetic Scherzo and a dynamic last movement, and serve with the Andante of the theme and variations based on Schubert's song, spice with great sound that for once lets you hear every note of the double-bass, and you have a dish fit for a king. In the famous fourth-movement variations, each of the players displays his tonal wares to fine effect and, in Braley's showy part, virtuosity. The final variation is taken at a relaxed jog, bathing the movement in sunshine. Schubert's meaty Variations on "Trockne Blumen," from his song cycle Die Schöne Mullerin was written for flute. Here it's performed in a violin version by Capucon with beauty, feeling, and virtuosity. The encore is the brief Litanie, a song transcription for violin, closing a memorable program. --Dan Davis

Format: Audio CD
There was a time when chamber ensembles would devote entire recitals to the music of Franz Schubert - at times lieder, at times instrumental works, and at times a combination of both - recitals termed Schubertiades. This new CD takes advantage of that concept and offers not only a fresh and gleamingly elegant performance of the very well known Trout Quintet (Piano Quintet in A), but also offers a rarity in the transcription of works from Schubert's song cycle 'Die schöne Müllerin' for violin and piano.

The well known artists in this recording are of course the Brothers Capuçon - Renaud Capuçon, violin and Gautier Capuçon, cello - and Frank Braley, piano. The quintet is rounded out with violist Gérard Caussé and bass Alois Posch and together this ensemble sounds as though it has played together for many years. The Trout Quintet is often recorded and there are many exemplary performances of it still available. But few have the sparkle and inherent ease of performance that this ensemble offers. The music sings, the individual artists support their solo lines with grace, and the recorded sound is well balanced with a fine presence.

For many the reason for electing to add another Trout Quintet to the library will be the performance of Renaud Capuçon and Frank Braley in the transcriptions of 'Die schöne Müllerin' - 'Variations for violin and piano on 'Trockne Blumen'. This song cycle is often performed by vocalists and the selections transcribed will be very familiar to most. It is refreshing and a pleasure to hear works we know in one manner performed by other instruments, and the result here is most satisfying. As an encore to the Schubertiade Frank Braley and Renaud Capuçon offer 'Litanei auf das Fest Allerseelen', a work far too seldom heard. This is a very satisfying Schubert recital from every aspect. Grady Harp, May 11

Bravo! These guys are good, really good. This is a very spirited performance throughout, with just the right tempos and plenty of careful attention to detail in the score, all of which comes out clearly in a well-balanced warm recording. Ambience is not outstanding but quite good, however 3D and L-R imaging is excellent. There's lots of joy and wit here and while each player gives his individual best, there is tight cohesion and consideration of the other players at all times. Nice deep rich double bass sound. Compares favourably with the excellent performance on Harmonia Mundi by the Wanderer Trio, also a fine recording although this Virgin one might be just a little better. In any case the two recordings are right on the top of the pile, not just of recent Trouts, but indeed any. The Capucons and Braley have also made a brilliant recording of Ravel chamber music, highly recommended.

I have five recordings of the Trout. This one is by far the best.There is sound and also musical performance. This Trout is the best on both.

A previous reviewer calls this the essential Trout Quintet because it sounds joyful, naming the very quality that is sorely absent. It's problematic when a listener has decades of experience with a work that a new generation is just coming to. I can't hear this new Trout, with its scampering mood, at times simpering phrasing, and ever-so-light touch without comparing it to great performances that have moved me in the past, from Clifford Curzon and the Amadeus Quartet to Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax and friends. The weakest link here is the pianist. The Capucon brothers are regular partners with Frank Braley, whose primary virtue is that he gets out of their way.

A disappointing evening occurred at the Proms in London last summer when Martha Argerich cancelled at the last minute and Braley was called in to fill out Beethoven's Triple Cto. What I heard then is what I hear on this CD - elegant, underpowered playing without a trace of personality. Usually the piano dominates the texture, but except when Braley engages in some sparkling fast passagework, which he is good at, he contributes very little compared with Rudolf Serkin from Marloboro, Ax, Curzon, James Levine, or Brendel in his two recordings. Yet clearly the Capucons want to communicate a different Trout, springtime fresh, so to speak. What they end up with sounds superficial to me. The French used to snub Schubert' now the strategy seems to be to snub the tradition that revered him.

Schubert's Variations on Trockne Blumen are beloved by flutists but, frankly, interminable for the average listener. Since I'm allergic to the flute, the prospect of an arrangement for violin held some appeal. Renaud Capucon is a major talent, and I did find his performance not interminable.

This is the essential Trout recording , joyful, masterful and perfect in every way. Schubert himself would have loved the performance.
