ROMANTIC MASTERWORKS FROM SCHUMANN & BRAHMS
Two composers of the Romantic era are linked by a common love. Clara Schumann inspired her husband’s only piano concerto. Brahms, who was championed by Schumann, had the misfortune to fall for Clara, yearning for her until the end of his days. But in a sunny moment, he composed his engaging Second Symphony.
