Johannes X. Schachtner's song Remember the trout will be premiered in Saarbrücken

The pianist Silke Avenhaus inspired an examination of Schubert's Trout Quintet by five contemporary composers. Even before this composition of the group of authors with contributions by Ferran Cruixent, Osmo Tapio Räihälä, Gerald Resch, Johannes X. Schachtner and Dejan Lazić is finished and is to be premiered on 2 October 2018, appears in this context, another work on "trout theme" by Johannes X. Schachtner. On May 6, 2018, the baritone Peter Schöne and the pianist Jan Philipp Schulze will premiere the song "Remember the trout" by Schachtner in Saarbrücken.
Schachtner explains: "When I dealt with Schubert's setting for my trout quintet variation, Nachtrag," I discovered that the fourth verse of Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart's text by Franz Schubert was not set to music. This may well have been related to censorship, but the text in the stanza undergoes a very clear moralization. This is how I supplemented this hitherto unvertured stanza. "
