One of the things I really like about this Franklin Mint collection is that, not only does it include great sounding recordings/performances, but historical ones as well. This is one of the historical ones.

As always, if anyone has requests for other titles in this set, please add them to the comments.

From the booklet:

The reputation of Artur Schnabel (1882-1951) as a great master of piano literature included chamber music, in which he often collaborated with the outstanding Pro Arte Quartet, whose Belgian-born leader Alphonse Onnou (1893-1940) was also its founder. This collaboration resulted in the great performance of Schubert’s matchless “Trout,” recorded in 1935 and acclaimed throughout the world. In the years since its introduction, it has retained a lonely, unchallenged prominence.

Track List:

Side One
01 – Allegro vivace
02 – Andante

Side Two
07 – Scherzo: Presto & Trio
08 – Theme: Andantino & Variations
09 – Finale: Allegro giusto

Alfred Hobday – bass
