Lot 745: Distinguished pianist (1819–1896) of the Romantic era. Rare AMQS on an off-white 10.5 x 7.75 sheet, signed below in crisp ink, "Clara Schumann, Hamburg, January 1861." Schumann pens four bars in B-flat major from a work by her husband, Robert Schumann. A central vertical fold, scattered creases and soiling, and a small tear to the left edge, otherwise fine condition. Clara Schumann exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. She and her husband were early champions of Johannes Brahms and instrumental in advancing his career. As a nice association between the musical couple—and the first Schumann AMQS we have offered—this is an outstanding piece.
