Piano Concerto in A Minor!

June 8, 2017

This concerto is one of Robert Schumann’s greatest orchestral works, and what better way to celebrate Robert Schumann’s birthday than with this magnificent piano concerto?  Enjoy!  But first, some interesting facts: did you know that  . . .

  • Schumann failed as a pianist (and devoted most of his energy toward composition)?
  • Schumann was a poet as well as a composer?
  • Schumann was not a talker?
  • Schumann spent the last two years of his short life (died at the age of 46) in a mental asylum?
  • being a father was important to Schumann? (And he was a really good one.)

Enjoy!
