Pianist Jonathan Biss says most of what he knows about himself, he's learned through the music of Robert Schumann. Among classical composers, Schumann is often dismissed as second-rate. Biss thinks Schumann just needs a better advocate and has assumed that role himself. The pianist joined Performance Today host Fred Child in the studio to perform Schumann's most brilliant compositions and to discuss Schumann's melodic poetry, his relationship with his wife, Clara Schumann, and Schumann's mental illness. Meanwhile, Biss is blogging about what this music has meant in his own life.
