THIS work takes its title from its last Movement
-L but one, which is founded on the Composer's own song. The Trout. The Quintet employs an unusual combination of instruments -Violin, Viola, 'Cello, Double-Bass and Piano.
There are five separate Movements, as follows:
FIRST MOVEMENT (Quick, lively). At first, the First Main Tune is only hinted at. Then, after a little climax, the Violin plays the complete Tune (which is like a short verse of a song), accompanied lightly by the other Strings, and punctuated by little upward flights on the Piano. The Piano repeats this Tune, decorating it.
After a good deal of running up and downstairs in all instruments, the Second Main Tune appears in the form of a Duet for Violin and 'Cello.
There is a wealth of material in this piece, but these two Tunes are all that can or need be noted here.
SECOND MOVEMENT (At a steady pace). The
Piano starts an easy-going Tune, and is answered by the Strings. After this has been treated at leisure, another Tune is heard in Viola and 'Cello. These are the two chief Tunes of a florid, but expressive Movement.
THIRD MOVEMENT, Scherzo (Very fast). The word ' Scherzo ' (or ' jest ') could hardly be better applied than to this playful Movement.
Even the ' Trio,' or Second Main Section, only differs from the First Main Section in being, perhaps, a little gentler. After the Second Main Section the first is repeated.
FOURTH MOVEMENT. This is a set of Variations on the song, The Trout. The Melody is given out by Strings alone ; it is in two halves, each of which is repeated.
There follow Six Variations, all very complex, but easy to follow.
FIFTH MOVEMENT (Moderately quick). This is an intricate Finale to follow in detail, but it is all exhilarating music, with some inspiring moments. Notice the delightful dance-tune with which it opens.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
