Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann had a special relationship - there's no denying it.  Brahms wrote to his friend Joachim, "I often have to restrain myself forcibly from just quietly putting my arm around her..."  As for Clara, when she played his G major Violin Sonata, she wrote to Brahms, "...I could not help bursting into tears of joy over it."  There's no evidence of hanky-panky between them, but let's face it - he was head-over-heels in love!
