My favourite are:

Mendelssohnn n.1 in D minor (currently working on it)
Shostakovich n.2 in E minor
Tchaikovsky in A minor
Brahms n.1 in B major
Beethoven 'Archiduke'
And a few Mozart but can't exactly remember which ones

My favorite piano trio is Bill Evans' in the early sixties with Paul Motian and Scott LaFaro!  ;)

Others worth mentioning:

- Ravel trio in A minor.

- Dvorak - op. 90

Also, it's not a proper piano trio, but the Brahm horn trio (piano, violin and French horn) is my favorite chamber music piece.

Ravel

For a good laugh, check out my posts in the audition room, and tell me exactly how terrible they are :)

Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Archduke, Schubert Bb, and a third early Schubert Bb piano trio which is quite obscure and is called a sonata. And Schoenfield!
