ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Clara and Robert Schumann - one can see spiritual and artistic interdependence of their artistic achievements, visible in the similarity of themes of numerous piano pieces they composed. The mutual influence and inspiration were an unprecedented example of passion and love for each other and for music, to which they devoted their entire lives. Presented pieces are examples of mutual artistic inspiration of Clara and Robert themselves.
