Today is the 223rd birthday of Franz Schubert. I did not find this out until yesterday and wanted to record a Schubert piece on zither. Well, the “Ave Maria” I know and love so well would not fly, with accidentals I don’t quickly have access to on this instrument. So I searched for easy piano pieces and found this one, called “Die Forelle” (“The Trout”). Yesterday was the first time I heard this, so I spent many periods during the day arranging and practicing it. I’m pleased with how it turned out and hope you enjoy it, too!
