I could feel the depressions made from long use of the old staircase and could imagine I was stepping in the footprints of these two musical masters. The experience was touching and informative if short. The noise of the many children who were studying music in the remainder of the building provided a refreshing change from the serious quiet of the other musical venues and perhaps gave a truer sense of the atmosphere in which our musical genuises actually lived and worked.
A side note, although the Schumanns didn't meet Johannes Brahms untl years later many know of this close relationship and a small note to this effect when mentioning the many famous guests in this house would be helpful.
