1828: Schubert: Trio No. 2, Op. 100

FRIDAY, August 21, 2020 – 11:32 AM

(I’ve linked to three recordings. The first is in YouTube as a live video. You can see the guys play, but it’s only the famous, 2nd movement. The second link is the same group. The third is another famous group. If you are interested you can listen a bit to both groups and decide which you prefer.)

Schubert: Trio No. 2, Op. 100

This was used in a film from 1975, Barry Lyndon., and I barely remember anything about it. It won four Oscars, but like many films that are at least famous with critics, a piece of music was used in the film and became very popular at the time. The 2nd movement of this trio, used in the movie, is possibly far more well known today than the film.

The famous second movement…

It’s simple marked “Andante con moto”, meaning slow but with motion.

Trio Wanderer

Franz Schubert – Piano trio in E flat major No.2, op.100

This is the same piece, but now with all four movements.

Here it is again with another very famous trio.

  1. Wow. I don’t think I’ve heard this music before. Or maybe I have and never heard it properly til now.

    I’m continually more and more impressed by the smaller works. Symphonies are .. well, mind-blowing..

    But this?

    This is three friends having a chat.

  2. I ended up looking up Barry Lyndon – apparently an artist’s work in its own right. Youtube has an interesting blurb called “How Kubrick Achieved the Beautiful Cinematography of Barry Lyndon”. Back to the music – beautiful. I also found myself fascinated by the pianist’s hands as he played.
