Written in September 1816, the first of Schubert’s two string trios remained unfinished, with only one completed movement and a rough sketch of the second, marked andante sostenuto. His Octet, on the other hand, completed while the composer was struggling financially and undermined by illness, is a work of great breadth. Influenced by Beethoven and dedicated to the skilled clarinetist Count Ferdinand Troyer, it has always been a favourite of the chamber music repertoire.
