Schubert’s magnificent ‘Trout’ Quintet, possibly the best-known chamber piece in the world, comes to joyful life under the bows and fingers of musicians from the Opera North String Quartet, joined by principal double bass Paul Miller and pianist Ian Buckle.
Opening the evening, Dvořák’s String Quintet No.2, marries a crystal-clear sonata opening with lively folk dance, lyrical songlike sections, and a final groundswell of melody that gives full voice to the bass.
The Quartet is led by the leader of the Orchestra of Opera North, David Greed, joined by the string section principals Katherine New, David Aspin and Jessica Burroughs.
