"Song of Love"

In researching the lives of Robert and Clara Schumann, I came across this movie that depicts their marriage, and their relationship (Clara's, in particular) to Johannes Brahms. While the movie has a few Hollywood elements in it, it remains largely faithful to the true story about these fascinating people. Even more alluring is the soundtrack! As I have been selecting repertoire by both Robert and Clara for an upcoming project, I can see why they fell in love. If Robert Schumann had written his songs for me, I'd have fallen in love with him, too. Actually, I'm in love anyway!
