Piano Concerto in A minor Op.54
Down 47. Lowest position since 2006. Schumann is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
Schumann's only piano concerto was a very long time in the making. Its success was undoubtedly down to his passionate relationship with Clara Wieck, who was to become his wife. The work was premiered on 1st January 1846, with Clara at the keyboard.
