This afternoon we'll play his Piano Quintet with the Amadeus Quartet and pianist Philippe Entremont. Check out the finale on this video:
You also might enjoy a Studio 360 portrait of Robert & Clara:
Listen here for two pieces, Florestan & Eusebius: http://www.essentialsofmusic.com/composer/schumann_r.html
You see, these fictional figures Florestan and Eusebius, represent two contrasting sides of Schumann's personality. Florestan was impetuous, passionate, and forward-looking; Eusebius was a quiet, introspective, dreamer.
Musically and emotionally these two balanced ideas and themes, a sort of ying/yang.
We'll continue celebrating great music on KPAC & KTXI, still to come, the 100th birthday of William Schuman this August! (no relation to Robert, hahaha)
