Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Van Swieten Society is an ensemble of some of the best period instrument specialists in the Netherlands, who come together in various combinations to play at concerts and make recordings...'Schubert at Home' of course refers to Franz Schubert's immense contribution to Hausmusik performances in Biedermeyer Vienna...This is without doubt a Trout Quintet which I will return to most often out of the others in my collection; it so refreshes and rejuvenates the heart..." - John Miller, SA-CD.net

"We settled down for a night's good music making, with plenty of beer and knockwurst within reach." - English translation attributed to Franz Schubert from a letter to his brother, Ferdinand.
