Amy Beach's piano quintet proved a deservedly popular success in it's early years. On this recording from the Takács Quartet and Garrick Ohlsson, it makes a compelling, and surprising, match for Elgar's own piano quintet. A late work by the composer, written around the time of the cello concerto, it inhabits a similar emotional landscape.
