"Clara has composed a series of small pieces, which show a musical and tender ingenuity such as she has never attained before. But she cannot work at it regularly, and I am often disturbed to think how many profound ideas are lost because she cannot work them out."
—Robert Schumann

"Sometimes your music really frightens me, and I wonder:
Is it really true that the creator of such things is my husband?"
—Clara Schumann
