Christoph Eschenbach reunites with the Paris-based Thymos Quartet in Schubert’s triumphant chamber work, the Trout Quintet, a recording that celebrates the 80th birthday of the great pianist/conductor. From babbling brook and leaping fish, this present-day Schubertiade relocates to a 19th-century Viennese salon, with a selection of the composer’s waltzes in unique chamber music arrangements and concludes with selected Ländler, performed by pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger, ranging in mood from iridescent to intimate.
