To end our Schumann bicentenary survey, Irish pianist Finghin Collins plays the closest thing we have to a second Schumann piano concerto, while Robin Holloway offers a fresh slant on the composer's final song-cycle, which sets poems and prayers penned in exile and prison by Mary, Queen of Scots.
Gianandrea Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic also include masterpieces by two other composers who sadly lived even shorter lives.

Schumann Introduction and Allegro appassionato in G major, Op. 92 (16 mins)
