From Wikipedia: The Trout Quintet is the popular name for the Piano Quintet in A major by Franz Schubert. In Otto Erich Deutsch‘s catalogue of Schubert’s works, it is D. 667. The work was composed in 1819,[1] when Schubert was only 22 years old; it was not published, however, until 1829, a year after his death.[2]

Rather than the usual piano quintet lineup of piano and string quartet, Schubert’s piece is written for piano, violinviolacello and double bass. The composerJohann Nepomuk Hummel had rearranged his own Septet for the same instrumentation,[3] and the Trout was actually written for a group of musicians coming together to play Hummel’s work.>>>>>>>>>>more HERE

From Wikipedia: Jacqueline Mary du PréOBE (26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987) was a British cellist. She is particularly associated with Elgar‘s Cello Concerto in E Minor, her interpretation of which has been described as “definitive” and “legendary.”[1] Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at age 28, and led to her premature death. Posthumously, she was the subject of a film Hilary and Jackie (based on her siblings’ memoir, A Genius in the Family) that was factually controversial and criticized for sensationalising her private life.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>more HERE
