In 1840 Robert Schumann married his beloved Clara Wieck, and in the same year composed an extraordinary number of songs, including the cycle Liederkreis, op. 24. Tonight's programme features a recording by British tenor and New Generation Artist Ben Johnson, made specially for Radio 3 earlier this year with pianist James Baillieu.
