The overly serious musicologist shrinks from pronouncing the words Trout Quintet. He is well aware that this ‘subtitle’ did not originate with Franz Schubert, who wrote the quintet for piano, violin, viola cello and double bass in A major. And indeed, the choice of epithets for works by other composers has at times been unfortunate; indeed, taking into consideration the content of the entire work, one might even say misrepresentative, or distracting.

Press reviews

A fine pianist alone would not be enough, but Martin Helmchen is fortunate to be joined by four superb string players who have coalesced brilliantly with him to create an outstanding chamber ensemble. Christian Tetzlaff, while perhaps best known as a soloist in the concert hall, also has a dedicated career as a chamber musician as do Marie-Elisabeth Hecker (cello) and Antoine Tamestit (viola), while Alois Posch is no less than leader of the bass section of the Vienna Philharmonic / Wiener Philharmoniker.

The recording, made in the intimate acoustic of the Siemens-Villa, Berlin, is tonally accurate and beautifully balanced, allowing the listener to hear each individual player’s performance while still maintaining a coherent and homogeneous sound. This is a wonderful release that certainly deserves a top recommendation.
