Taking up portraiture as well as allegorical and religious subjects, Spanish painters emphasized the drama of both religious climax and common every day moments. Gustav Mahler's Piano Quartet in A minor is an early work that exhibits the composer's ability to create highly emotional soundscapes. Kaija Saariaho's eerily beautiful Aure is breathy and wispy, while Joaquín Turina's lush, radiant Circulo depicts Spanish bullfights and Flamenco dancers. Commonly referred to as the "Trout," Schubert's Piano Quintet in A Major, D. 667 features a set of variations on the composer's earlier vocal work "The Trout." This spirited chamber work showcases Schubert's lush, yet graceful compositional style and forward-thinking use of chromaticism.
