“I once believed that I possessed creative talent, but I have given up this idea; a woman must not desire to compose—there has never yet been one able to do it. Should I expect to be the one?” – Clara Schumann, 1839
The G minor Piano Trio is undoubtedly one of Clara Schumann’s best-known compositions, and a fine example
of Romantic chamber music.
