Piano Quartet Lists and Resources

So many wonderful musical works have been written for the combination of violin, viola, cello and piano. Here are some lists and resources dedicated to the art of the piano quartet:
Here is the second movement of the Gabriel Fauré second piano quartet as played by pianist Gloria Chien, violinist Cindy Tien-Hsin Wu, violin, violist Youming Chen, and cellist Dmitri Atapine. (NB: that long, shallow stage looks familiar....might that be the Kresge Auditorium at Bowdoin College in Maine?)
