Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason hit the national headlines in April 2019 following the announcement of her signing to Decca Classics, joining her younger brother, cellist Sheku, on the label in Decca's 90th birthday year. Isata's debut album Romance, takes listeners on a journey through the extraordinary life of Clara Schumann, one of the most distinguished composers and pianists of the Romantic era.

Isata Kanneh-Mason joins forces with an all-female line-up to champion the significance of women musicians throughout the years, and their influence on the classical musical canon. The recording features Clara Schumann's Piano Concerto In A Minor, which she composed at the age of fourteen, and performed two years later under the baton of Felix Mendelssohn.
