The SCHUBERT Quintet in A Major, D. 667 "Trout" (STPL 510.890) by the Endres Quartet and pianist Rolf Reinhardt was originally issued on a 1958 VOX LP. My 1963 reissue, not available at AMMY when this review was published, has a painting repro on the front cover of a single span stone bridge across a stream. This 1972 version of this same recording is from 1972.

PERSONNEL: Rolf Reinhardt (piano), Heinz Endres (violin), Fritz Ruf (viola), Adolph Schmidt (cello), Georg Hörtnagel (double bass)

It's been said that Franz Schubert scored his Opus 115 "Trout" quintet for piano, violin, viola, cello and counter bass solely because there was a bass player in Steyr, the town where Schubert was vacationing, who wished to participate in his latest chamber work, and Franz was willing to oblige. Another explanation is that he wrote "Trout" for a chamber group (with bass) assembled to play a Johann Hummel septet that used the same instrumentation. Although unorthodox, this string and keyboard combination works quite well because the composer scored the "thick" sounding instrument only as support for the melody.

At age 21, Schubert wrote a song called Die Forelle ("The Trout") that was inspired by a poem about an intent angler hooking a carefree fish. A year later he used the lied as basis for this work's 4th movement, the theme w/variations, which is how it came by its name. Elements of the original song are heard in every movement of this quintet except the scherzo. As one of his relatively early efforts, Schubert seems to avoid complex development and sharply focused structure.
