Robert Schumann

Schumann was born in Zwickau in 1810 and died in Endenich in 1856. He was a German composer, critic, conductor and pianist. Although Schumann’s interests lay mainly in the music world, he did study law at two universities (Leipzig and Heidelberg).

In 1828, he met his future wife, Clara Wieck. Clara was not only an inspiration for Schumann, but a premiere interpreter and promoter of his compositions, as she was a first rate pianist (and an excellent composer).

Schumann incorporated classical structure into his romantic style. Presently, his piano works are considered poetic, and his chamber music is recognized as first rate. Although his orchestration is occasionally labeled as thick, it has not diminished the popularity of his orchestral works and concertos. Included among his masterpieces is his Piano Concerto in A minor (1845).

An Amazing Schumann Fact

Clara’s devoted love was not enough in preventing an ailing Robert Schumann from an attempted suicide. His last two unfortunate years were in an asylum.
