    Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Schubert - they need no introduction; their works are as beloved as they are familiar. But 19th-century Europe was rich in gifted composers who since have stayed in the shadows, their music for the most part little known and rarely performed today. Yet they were part of a vibrant musical world, and while some were better known as performers or teachers, their compositions were praised or influenced by their better-known contemporaries. Our concerts this month look at intriguing relationships, musical and otherwise, among several well-known Romantic composers and a handful of their less well-known colleagues or admirers. It's illuminating, sometimes surprising, and always enjoyable to hear worthy but unfamiliar works performed beside Romantic benchmarks, and to trace the interconnections among less familiar composers and the musical giants who were their mentors, colleagues, and friends.
