On Demand: Hooked! Twin Inspirations for Piano Quintet
Faculty Artist Series
UNCSA faculty-artists explore what inspired and was inspired by Franz Schubert’s famous
“Trout Quintet.” When Schubert wrote the “Trout,” he and the benefactor who commissioned
the piece were drawing inspiration from Hummel’s Piano Quintet, Op. 87. The work is
paired with a piece that Schubert's “Trout'' inspired: Ellen Taafe Zwillich’s engaging,
jazzy and recently composed Quintet for Piano, Violin, Viola, Cello, and Double Bass.
