Schubert's monumental Trio in E-flat op. 100 (D 929) is one of the longest chamber music pieces. Nobody but Robert Schumann has better described the atmosphere of op. 100, full of "repressed fury", "passionate sickness", "deep anguish". Particularly well known is the slow movement, chosen by Stanley Kubrick in 1975 as soundtrack of his famous movie "Barry Lyndon".
Mendelssohn' s D minor piano Trio op. 49, dated 1839, is simply perfect in refinement, balance, proportions, though the typical lightness of Mendelssohn is tested here by a virtuoso writing and sometimes by a dramatic mood.
