The pianist Imogen Cooper is well known for her interpretations of the solo piano music of Schubert. Here she teams up with the violinist Henning Kraggerud and the cellist Adrian Brendel to perform two of Schubert's masterpieces of chamber music: his two piano trios, composed at the pinnacle of his career aged just 31, shortly before he died.

Schubert: Piano Trio no.1 in B flat, Op.99

Interval: A collection of Schubert lieder performed by Anne Sofie von Otter and Thomas Quasthoff with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under Claudio Abbado. Orchestrated by Johannes Brahms and Max Reger
Schubert: Piano Trio no.2 in E flat, Op.100

Henning Kraggerud (violin)
Adrian Brendel (cello)
Imogen Cooper (piano)

The two late piano trios of Schubert, though written only a few weeks apart, are quite different in character. Trio No. 1 in B-flat is a more confident outgoing work with a lighthearted finale. The Trio No. 2, on the other hand, is more serious in demeanour, with an inward brooding quality.
