Literature for piano quartet: sparse. Literature for piano quintet: scarce. Literature for fortepiano quintet: a true rarity. Or so one might think. The Nepomuk Fortepiano Quintet (which takes its seemingly odd name from the middle name of composer Johann Hummel, who composed for its instrumentation) has found enough literature to fill several albums. This installment features the one (and perhaps only) fortepiano quintet commonly known to listeners: Schubert's "Trout" Quintet.

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
