„You won’t be able to play these songs right now since the words will be too moving for you. But I ask you to look at them and to keep them as a true sacrifice for your beloved mother’s death.“

From a letter of Johannes Brahms, who was a longtime friend of Clara Schumann, to Clara’s daughter Marie.
