THE TROUT

The historic 1969 Documentary



 
(This film is now available as part of the DVD
Franz Schubert: The Trout / The Greatest Love & The Greatest Sorrow)

Daniel Barenboim, piano; Itzhak Perlman, violin; Pinchas Zuckerman, viola; Jacqueline du Pré, cello; & Zubin Mehta, double bass.

 "A film about how and why five of the most gifted young musicians of their time came together in London in 1969 to rehearse and perform Schubert's famous Trout Quintet. The film follows the lives and preparations of the artists during the week leading up to the concert and it ends with the complete performance shot live on stage, during the performance in the new Queen Elizabeth Hall in August 30th.

From beginning to end the film is an account of supremely gifted young musicians enjoying their talents, their special relationship, and the music of Franz Peter Schubert who wrote his Trout Quintet in the Summer of 1819 when he himself was only 22 years old. It is one of the most successful Classical Music films ever made."
