Schumann is a good start. Most of them are much more difficult. Borodin is another good beginning quintet. There are a number of Mozart concertos that can be played as quintets, and some Soler quintets. After that, you might go for Dohnanyi, Franck, and Brahms. There are more contemporary works, as well. There are a few with bass instead of a second violin, notably by Schubert and Hummel.

The Brahms is gorgeous, but it is quite difficult. The Dvorak, Franck, and Schubert quintets are also some of my favorites.

It has just about everything in it. You name it, it's got it. Beautiful, exciting, uplifting, terrifying, heavenly, dramatic, intellectual, folk.....

The Beethoven, like Mozart's, is for piano and winds.
