“The Vienna Octet’s remake, recorded with Sir Clifford Curzon in 1957 when Boskovsky was still leading, is one of those gramophone classics difficult to knock off its perch.”
– Gramophone

Decca Music Group releases a high-fidelity digital transfer of this 1958 release from Clifford Curzon and the Wiener Oktett performing Schubert’s “Trout Quintet”!

In the summer of 1819, Franz Schubert stayed in the Austrian town of Steyr where he began work on the composition of the five-movement Piano Quintet in A major, op. 114 (D 667) which was commissioned by the cellist Sylvester Paumgartner. The work was completed in the autumn and soon achieved great popularity under the name of Trout Quintet, which it owes to the Andantino fourth movement — a set of variations on the song of the same name.
