One of classical music's great love stories is Clara and Robert Schumann. Robert wrote this piece as a Christmas gift to Clara.
Robert met Clara while studying piano with Clara's father. Her father was not keen on the match and resisted it for years.
Clara was a child prodigy as well as one of the first pianists to regularly perform by memory.
