The Trio Wanderer returns to the Montansier, this time accompanied by its faithful accomplices, to perform the only piano quintet composed by Schubert, which takes its name from the variations on a song "Die Forelle" that make up its 4th movement.
Schubert composed it in the summer of 1819 during a stay in Upper Austria surrounded by friends and in a warm and carefree atmosphere which made him say at the end of this period of happiness: "Always enjoy the present with discernment, so that the past will be a beautiful memory for you and the future will not be a fright.

This quintet, The Wanderer Trio with Christophe Gaugué on viola and Lorraine Campet on double bass, will be preceded by Schumann's Piano Quartet op. 47, which comes from a brief period during which Schumann radically focused his attention on chamber music (between June 1842 and January 1843). Written with Clara, who was to be the pianist at the premiere on 8 December 1844 in Leipzig, in mind, this work underlines the composer's desire to escape from a piano that had become 'too narrow' for his overactive imagination, as he confided to Clara. Its third movement, which offers one of the most beautiful cello themes of the Romantic period, helps to make this work a culmination of almost all previous explorations of the piano quartet formation up to that time, laying the foundations on which later composers could build.
