"A trout is not just a fish. F. Schubert and C. Schubart can tell. Trout go against the flow, floundering to overcome all kinds of obstructions such as dams, watermills and fishermen. Their persistence swirls the imagination.
People can act like trouts, jumping around like fools to get around the self-made barriers, preventing themselves from doing what they really want to do...
Fish need to be heard. And we want to interpret their call! So we joined our slippery friends in the current of the rivers in the Auvergne (France), a region renowned for wild trout. There we re-created their music, which is also inspired by Schubert’s quintet and the taste of freshly baked trout."
