Trout - Die Forelle
Of all of Schubert’s lieder Die Forelle (The Trout) is undoubtedly the most famous and the most popular and it’s easy to see why it’s a charming piece that combines the memorability of a folk song with a freshness and a sense of innocence that are well-nigh irresistible. Its melody with its rippling arpeggio evokes the image of the fish swimming joyfully and without care through the water while the little rush of notes and its figure of three linked semitones brings to life the fish and its sudden darting movement.
