Prelude and Fugue for Organ, Op. 16, No. 3
Clara Schumann was well-known as a pianist and interpreter of Romantic piano literature, including the music of her husband Robert Schumann and longtime friend, Johannes Brahms. This work, from a set of three keyboard works, is a well-crafted prelude and fugue from the Romantic period, obviously inspired by her love and study of Bach’s music. CD Review (U.K.) asserts that this piece “shows something of the sobriety and strength which apparently characterised her piano playing.”
