    Mozart, Piano quartets
    Brahms: Piano Quintet
    Schumann: Piano Quartet and piano quintet
    Mozart: Piano concerto #24 in Cminor, #20 in Dminor
    Beethoven: Piano concertos#4 and #5
    That is if you want classical.

    you can't go wrong with "Glenn Gould- Goldberg Variations"- 32 short piano peices by Bach.

    you can google, "Glenn Gould Goldber Variations" and there is a vid of Glenn playing the 32 peices.

    Peter Erskine Trio. They did 4 albums in the 1990s. The pianist is John Taylor.

    Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

    Bobo Stenson Trio.

    And, for something a little more adventurous/unpredictable, Paul Bley.

    Would I sound like, er, totally uncool if I recommend to the Trev-dude, uh, sumthin' like Richard Clayderman?

    I mean, he's like, uh, so cool with those 70s valiant prince haircuts, and the white tux is so, like, uh, disco.

    I heard some Piazzolla tangos featuring piano or a chamber group including a piano on youtube yesterday morning, and I couldn't stop listening until I was keeling over from hunger.

    I've always felt it is an incredible emotional journey to go through all of the Beethoven Piano Sonatas, in order, from No. 1 to No. 32. Don't do it all in one day of course, because it takes about 11-12 hours.

    I like Debussy and Ravel; can't say I like Satie though. He's too banal for my tastes.

    I would love to read the reasoning behind calling Satie's work banal.

    Well, when you've heard one, you've heard them all.

    If you have ears of cloth, perhaps.
