Happy Valentine's Day from Sticky Notes! This week, we tell one of classical music's greatest love stories; the story of Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann. This complicated, difficult, and loving relationship is one of the most fascinating in history. We'll explore the young Brahms and his fervent love for Clara Schumann, the desperate love of Clara for Johannes, and the feverish atmosphere of their first infatuation which took place in the context of Robert Schumann's devastating mental illness. Thanks so much for listening, and I really hope you enjoy it!
