This was by request. Hope you enjoy it.

All three works presented here are products of composers who were either pianists of outstanding ability, or who had a close affiliation with the instrument in youth. While Schumann himself was not a pianist, he combined criticism with composition, and in both, he expressed such personality and individuality that writers and composers have been challenged to equal the results for more than a hundred years.

As always, if anyone has requests for other titles in this set, please add them to the comments.
