Schubert's Trout

Schubert's Trout

Part of City Music Foundation’s 2019 Summer Residency at The Wallace Collection

City Music Foundation (CMF) presents an evening of chamber music and song centred around the bubbling ‘Trout Quintet’. Joining to perform Schubert’s ever-popular quintet, the Eblana String Trio (2017 CMF Artist) and double bassist Toby Hughes (2018 CMF Artist) collaborate with guest performer, the celebrated pianist Sholto Kynoch. The first half of the concert sees Kynoch join with mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston (2018 CMF Artist) to present a selection of fish-inspired songs, including Schubert’s Die Forelle [The Trout]. Adding dolphins, crayfish, and a few singing fishermen to this lyrical aquarium, Charlston’s programme also includes songs by Mahler, Poulenc & Faure.
