Dvorak Piano Quintet
I recorded a horribly beautiful piece (from Swiss Internet Radio) and would like to find the disc;
Dvorak - Piano Quintet in A major Opus 81-02-Dumka, andante con moto

Do you think you could identify the recording if I can transfer the 16Mb mp3 somehow?

It's an old stereo recording with some hiss and quite colored but wonderful sound.

Any favourite performances of this piano quintet?

Dvorak's Quintet by Budapest Quartet?

It is a famous work and there are many recordings. I am not very intimate with Dvorak’s Piano Quintets I think I hear it a few times but did not dig deeper. Still, since it is popular chamber music then get your favorite string quartet and they most likely recorded the work with a guest pianist. I do not have a lot of Dvorak’s Quintets. The most memorable that I can recall was by Budapest Quartet from beginning of 50s. (In fact they were at that time more like Russian quartet). I ma sure somebody who looked at the Dvorak’s Quintets deeper would suggest more and perhaps some contemporary recordings… The peace really worth it…
