Introduktion und Allegro appassionato

Schumann’s Piano Concerto is famous and one of the foremost of its kind, but he also wrote another work for piano and orchestra: Introduction and Allegro. The piece was composed in two days in an exalted inspiration, at a time when Lord Byron’s supernatural drama Manfred engulfed Schumann. And it seems that Byron’s unholy spirits have taken some motives in a firm grip.
