    Default Taneyev Piano Quintet

    Does anyone know and love this piece?
    It's so over the top, but a gorgeous, passionate work.
    There's kind of an 'all star line up' CD with Pletnev which is incredible.

    In Mahler I usually prefer the Solti approach -caveman having a seisure whips orchestra into a frenzy!! - Radames, TC member

    I have the first of the recordings mentioned. I think that the work is a bit long, but it has some beautiful moments.

    I am a huge admirer of Taneyev's chamber music (which is stronger then his orchestral music, in my opinion). This is one of my most-listened-to works by this composer.

    <3 I like the Piano Quartet the most (that middle movement is to die for), but the Quintet is equally formidable! Taneyev and Arensky are among the few composers I truly enjoy their chamber music from, especially when it includes piano.

    Here is an absolutely amazing, vibrant live performance of this gorgeous quintet, dating from 2001. The pianist here is again Mikhail Pletnev but the string players are different from those who participated in the CD recording.

    If you are going to buy a a recording, this is the one to get. An outstanding performance of the Quintet, great sound, and a very good performance of the Piano Trio.

    This performance is outstanding indeed; but compared to the live version by the same team... it is nowhere close in terms of passion and energy coming from the musicians!!
