Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano, Op 70
Composed just a couple of days after the Fantasiestücke, the Adagio and Allegro, originally called Romance and Allegro, represents Schumann in love-song mode. The tenderness of the Adagio, followed by the ecstatic happiness of the Allegro, shows Schumann at his most romantic. And that is as romantic as music can be!
