Schumann is an Ultimate Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder. This has appeared in every Hall of Fame chart, reaching its highest position of 138 in 2007.
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.
