Classical music
Schumann and Schubert: Piano Quintets. The Atlantis Ensemble. Musica Omnia, $13.99.

The performance sounds like infectious fun breaking out among friends playing the most delightful pieces of 19th-century chamber music. The ensemble plays an original 1835 Graf piano and suitably matched string instruments. As a bonus, Max van Egmond sings the song “Die Forelle” (The Trout), which became a set of variations within Schubert’s quintet.

Haydn: Piano Trios (complete). Van Swieten Trio. Brilliant Classics, 10-CD set, $46.98.
