Schumann: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54

The South Birmingham Sinfonia performed this concerto as part of the Autumn 2015 concert.

The Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54, is an expansion of an earlier fantasy for piano and orchestra. Schmann's pianist wife, Clara, urged him to expand this to a full piano concerto. The concerto was completed in 1845 by adding an intermezzo and finale, and premiered in Leipzig on 1st January 1846 with Clara Schumann playing the solo part.
