The Piano Trio No. 2 in E flat major is a four movement work, beginning with a sonata movement with a surprising shift to the dissonant key of B minor. The second movement, andante con moto, is my favorite of the four; a march-like Swedish folk song whose theme is carried throughout the movement. The third movement, scherzo, is an Austrian country dance with fading imitation and emulation. The finale, allegro, is special in the fact that Schubert employed a technique that had never been done before. In an unexpected twist, Schubert brought back the main theme of the 2nd movement, a technique many later Romantic composers used in their music.
