CLARA SCHUMANN - Complete Works for Piano, Vol.2 - 1-CD Partridge1130 The compositions of the phenomenal WUNDERKIND and the successful young piano virtuoso Clara Wieck, and of the mature, trend-setting artist CLARA SCHUMANN have long been thought to be little worthy of attention. Her creative activities are for the greater part unthinkable and not understandable if not seen in relation to her friend, fiancé and husband Robert Schumann. It would be very unjust, however, to see her relatively small oeuvre as merely an echo or even as a lacklustre reflection of Schumann's music. The fact is that Schumann already took her seriously as a composer in her own right when she was a 12-year old girl, and much more so when she was his fiancé and wife. He has stimulated, inspired and supported her creative work to the best of his abilities.
