Item description for Robert Schumann (Life&Times) by Barbara Meier...

Robert Schumann (1810-1856) was the quiet one, the tormented genius. A serious illness prevented him from becoming a pianist, but he fell in love with and in 1840 married Clara, the daughter of his teacher Friedrich Wieck against her father's wishes. In 1843, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy appointed him lecturer in composition at the conservatory in Leipzig. A year later, the couple moved to Dresden. Then, in 1850, he became the Musical Director of the city of Dsseldorf. But his demons followed him wherever he went and he tried to kill himself by jumping into the Rhine four years later. He died two years later in a sanatorium.

Reviews - What do customers think about Robert Schumann (Life&Times)?

Robert Schumann  Jun 10, 2007
An interesting account of the social mores of the times, particularly courting and marriage conventions , is woven into what is mainly a detailed description and analysis of Schumann's body of work. A musician's knowledge of composition is necessary if the reader is to fully appreciate the author's analysis of the Sonatas and Symphonies. If, like me, you just like listening to his music and don't have an expert knowledge of music theory, you will find parts of this book hard going. The book is very good when describing the methods of a working musician, for example, adaptations of the work of celebrated composers of the times (Bach, Brahms).
If you love Schumann's music ( a tad unfashionable these days as some of his music is a bit on the morbid side) you will to like this book.
