Jamscience - That'd be the last place I'd go - and Vivaldi! Good grief - that just highlights what prats that place attracts! Anyway, it's classical experts I need not prog ones (if the latter exists as a concept - and it doesn't believe me!) :)
I'm pretty sure it is Schubert but I am not so confident it's played as in the QVL piece i.e. if it really is a chamber piece. If not, it could solo piano, although it does sound "right" in that track.
I have a feeling that the peice is used in the wonderful French film "Péril en la demeure" (aka Death in a French Garden). I have the DVD but it doesn't list the music used in the credits, so I'll have to skim through it to see if it's there. Doesn't exactly help me to ID it but I know that they used Schubert, Brahms and Granados, so one of those is the best bet. I recognise the two German composers styles but am very unfamiliar with the Spaniard.
Almarg, I would have bet good money it was one of Schubert's chamber works. Fortunately, it didn't take long to scan through his 2 trios, and once I ruled out LvB, Brahms was my next stop. I listen to the Schubert, LvB, and Brahms piano trios the most, and that piece was so familiar it had to be one of those three.
I have to say I prefer the Floristan Trio account to the youtube version.
Well done that man! I have very little chamber music but I do have all the Schubert piano trios so that's saved me trawling through them needlessly.
I might return to this subject as I'm compiling a list of classical pieces used in Prog rock. Most items I can ID myself but I'm sure there will be a few I need assistance with.
