    Default Schuman Piano Trios / Quartets / Quintets

    Fav recordings of Schumann chamber music? Been listening to the DG box forever, looking for something new.

    The set I have with Eric La Sage is apparently out of print.
    It includes all the chamber music by Schumann which has a piano part somewhere in it. (So no string quartets etc.):
    Is it good? I don't know I rarely listen to Schumann, but it was praised by critics when it first came out.

    The Florestan Trio are great with Schumann. There’s also a good Naxos disc with the Schumann and Brahms piano quintets.

    Try to hear the New Music Quartet, there was a release recently with the recordings remastered very well.

    Apart from that, did you see this which I posted here a few weeks ago?

    Pires for the quintet (DG), Argerich for both the quartet and quintet (Warner or EMI boxes). They both play with assembled musicians, not a regular trio/quartet.

    The Le Sage set is outstanding, and has excellent sound, which helps. They're scratch ensembles, not really used to playing together, but that has both advantages and disadvantages. Anyway I think you won't be sorry to hear their chamber music CDs.

    If the only piano quintet you have heard is the one with Gulda and Hagen you're in for a surprise because what they do is unique.
