(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.)
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.
It’s simple marked “Andante con moto”, meaning slow but with motion.
This is the same piece, but now with all four movements.
Here it is again with another very famous trio.
