Classical Music Playlist, May 9, 2022

Robert Schumann wrote his only violin concerto just before his suicide attempt in early 1854 and his subsequent admission to a sanatorium where he would spend the rest of his life. Some saw the Concerto as the work of a declining creative mind and kept it locked away for more than 80 years before its world premiere in 1937. Robert Schumann’s Violin Concerto in D minor is today the chief -work from noon to 2 p.m.
