Die Forelle (The Trout) is composed by Franz Peter Schubert in early 1817 for solo voice and piano. Schubert wrote six subsequent copies of the work, all with minor variations.
The text is from a poem by Christian Friedrich Daniel Schubart, originally published in the Schwäbischen Musenalmanach of 1783. While the poem is seemingly concerned with a trout being caught by a fisherman, the final stanza reveals it to be a moral piece warning young women to be on their guard against young men. When Shubert put the poem to music, he removed the last verse which contained the moral. In doing so he opened the song for either male or female singers.
Schubert wrote Die Forelle (The Trout) in the single key of D-flat major with a varied (or modified) strophic form. The first two verses have the same structure but change for the final verse to give a musical impression of the trout being caught. In the Deutsch catalogue of Schubert's works it is number 550, or D550. The musicologist Marjorie Wing Hirsch describes its type in the Schubert lieder as a "lyrical song with admixtures of dramatic traits".
The song was popular with contemporary audiences, which led to Schubert being commissioned to write a piece of chamber music based on the song, which resulted in the Trout Quintet (D. 667), in which a set of variations of "Die Forelle" are present in the fourth movement. More recently, "Die Forelle" was featured in the soundtrack of Guy Ritchie's 2011 film Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.
