The ninety-ninth classical recording: #305 Robert Schumann - Piano Quintet
It sounds like this work got popular after it was composed as a known and loved piece of chamber music. Although I can't entirely judge this, I can see why it could be under these circumstances. While it goes through different emotions - the second movement is the most dour, based on a funeral march - there is quite an upbeat feel to most of it, an energy and excitement that lifts your spirits. The ascending and descending scales of the third movement grab your attention with the intensity of the piece really coming through.
