For our annual program at the lovely Ahavath Achim Synagogue, we are proud to present two of chamber music’s most beloved works. Romanticist Antonin Dvorak’s famous “Dumky” piano trio features alternating elegiac and jubilant emotions in this powerful work infused with stylized Eastern European melodies and dance rhythms typical of the composer’s native Bohemia. Viennese composer Franz Schubert turned to his own song “Die Forelle” for the famous melody featured in the quintet’s Theme and Variations movement. The unusual instrumentation of piano and double bass plus violin, viola and cello was the special request of amateur string player and avid fisherman Sylvester Paumgartner, who commissioned the work from young Schubert. The “Trout” Quintet was only published after Schubert died in 1828 but has gone on to be one of the most popular works in all of chamber music. Pianist Alex Wasserman will be making his ACP debut in this performance of the “Trout.”
