Robert Schumann Composer Cover

Robert Schumann‘s Cello Concerto in A Minor premiered on this day in 1860 – four years after the composer’s death.

The first performance was given by cello virtuoso Ludwig Ebert – at the Leipzig Conservatory.

It’s believed the work, a much performed standard in today’s cello repertoire, was completed in a period of less than two weeks.
