A few weeks ago I sang the praises of Julia Fischer's Brahms Viloin Concerto on Pentatone (not to mention the Double Concerto on the same disc). At the time I did not realize that I would have the coveted opportunity to see Fischer in person. Well, this evening I did just that at Davies Hall San Francisco. She played as part of two Schubert compositions, the Sonata in A minor and the marquee Quintet in A major, "Trout". The Schumann "Fantasiestucke for Clarinet and Piano" was the first performance).
The Sonata, was certainly "pleasant" enough, but who are we fooling? It was the "Trout" that the largely sold out crowd came to see and hear. And Fischer and her quintet partners responded in a most scintillating way. I'm not learned in chamber music enough to "rate" the performance, so I will defer to the audience which responded with a standing applause that while not unbounded, was enthusiastic, unusually sustained and relentless in demand for at least 4 return bows by the performers.
Can anyone recommend an outstanding "Trout" on SACD?
P.S. During intermission, on a whim, I purchased Gordon Getty's "Young America", a San Francisco Symphony and Chorus Pentatone SACD that I did not know existed.

Yefim Bronfman and Julia Fischer are two of today’s top instrumentalists. Their passion and virtuosity ignite any music they approach, and when they join their SFS colleagues in an evening of chamber music—including Schubert’s Trout Quintet—the results are bound to be incendiary.
