Originally recorded as a livestream at Turner Sims on Sunday 4 October, 2020, we revisit this performance for one day only as we celebrate Schubert’s birthday.

Join us for this free broadcast, as David Owen Norris and the Jupiter Ensemble perform Schubert’s popular Trout Quintet in this exclusive performance. This masterpiece of the chamber music repertoire takes its title from the composer’s song which forms the basis of a set of variations in one of the movements, and was a favourite of the work’s dedicatee, Sylvester Paumgartner. A wealthy music patron and amateur cellist, Paumgartner hosted musical evenings at his home in Steyr, Austria, at which Schubert and friends often performed.
