Extra Information This work is one of the last Clara composed for piano. She presented the piece to Robert Schumann, her husband, for the last birthday he spent with his family. Inspired by this example, Johannes Brahms composed his own Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann, Op.9 and dedicated them to Clara.
