CLASSICAL:  For Clara: Works by Schumann & Brahms – Hélène Grimaud and Konstantin Krimmel – Deutsche Grammophon

Perhaps the most intriguing love triangle in classical music is that of Robert Schumann, his wife Clara and up ‘n’ coming composer Johannes Brahms. As Robert’s mental struggles grew in intensity, Brahms became a close ally to both Schumanns, but a more romantic relationship developed with Clara.
