NATIONALITY

IN GENERAL
Robert Schumann (1810-1856): Schumann is one of the most important romantic figures of his era. Schumann dealt enough with the songs and even more with the music for the piano, always with the sensitivity and straightness that suits to a great artist. Schumann's work can be characterized as poetic and in a lot of its points as one of a superior technique. Few are Schumann's works that are not executed regularly in our days.

STYLE
Robert Schumann (1810-1856): Schumann's style is romantic, gentle and - in the good sense - intellectual. Big inspiration and clear-cut technique are existing in most of his works. Schumann was trying to be genuine and not to succumb to any kind of compromise. Schumann's songs are revealing the joy of life and love. The music for the piano is speaking for his exceptional talents. In his music for larger ensembles Schumann displays all aspects of his gift using - himself too - part of the classical tradition.

Robert Schumann (1810-1856): Enough varied is Schumann's work : 4 Symphonies, 3 Concertos (for Piano, for Violin and for Cello), Chamber Music (1 Quintet, 2 Quartets, 2 Trios with Piano etc.), Music for Piano (3 Sonatas, Butterflies, Carnival, Fantasy Pieces, Symphonic Studies, Scenes from Childhood, Kreisleriana, Fantasia etc.), 260 Lieds, an Opera with the name "Genoveva", a Requiem, stage music for Goethe's "Manfred" and various theoretical texts.
