History tells of the love that both Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms felt towards Clara Schumann. Schumanns’ Fantasiestucke, Op. 73 and
Brahms’ Clarinet Sonata, Op.120, No.2 were written nearly 50 years apart and yet each is an example of deeply Romantic music which typically deals with love and longing.
