Om forfatteren

Born in Zwickau, Germany, Robert Schumann hoped early in his career to become a piano virtuoso. That dream was shattered in 1832, however, when he sustained permanent injury to his right hand while using a finger-strengthening device that he had invented. Thereafter, he devoted his energies to vis mere composition. His first compositions, the Toccata, Paganini studies, and Intermezzi, were published in 1833. A year later, he founded and edited Neue Leipzige Zeitschrift fur Musik, a music magazine that became influential in its support of romanticism. Schumann's attachment to Clara Wieck (the future Clara Schumann), the daughter of his piano teacher, was frowned upon by her disapproving father, who considered Schumann unsuitable. Despite this opposition, the two were married in 1849. The Schumanns made several concert tours together, with Clara performing the premieres of many of Robert's works. Schumann is especially noted for his cycles of piano music, particularly Papillons (1829-31), Carnaval (1834-35), and Phantasiestucke (1837). His works are marked by imaginative power, with beautiful melodies and harmonies, and they embody the romantic spirit that prevailed at the time. During the latter part of his life, Schumann worked as an orchestral conductor in Dresden and Dusseldorf. In 1854 his health began to decline and he was plagued by symptoms of mental illness that had recurred throughout his life. That same year, fearing for his sanity, he threw himself into the Rhine river. He was rescued by fishermen and taken to an asylum, where he died two years later. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Kort biografi
Robert Schumann was one of the most important Romantic composers of the first half of the 19th century. He fell in love with and married the pianist Clara Wieck, the daughter of his teacher, against her father's wishes. In February 1854, Schumann threw himself into the Rhine River but was rescued. He then asked to be taken to a private asylum and died in 1856.

Robert Schumann first met Clara Wieck when he started piano lessons with her father in 1828. He was 18 and she 9, but this was never a Novalis-style cradle-snatching romance: in the first place they were playmates and best buddies in a brother-and-sister way - neither of them had had much other opportunity to be a "normal" child up to that point. It was only after Clara's first big concert tour, when she was 16, that Robert started to fall in love with her, and a couple of years more before they both felt ready to commit themselves to each other.

By that time Clara was earning big money as one of the top concert pianists in Europe, whilst Robert's earning capacity as a music-journalist and struggling composer was barely sufficient to support himself as a bachelor. So it was perhaps understandable that Friedrich Wieck was unwilling to let go of the daughter he'd been training up to be a genius since she was five. But he let his jealousy (whether it was motivated by money or by concern for his daughter) get out of hand, trying to blackmail Clara, blacken Robert's name, and generally cause trouble. (But, astonishingly, he never seems to have managed to prevent them from exchanging letters in secret, and even meeting from time to time.) Eventually, he pushed them so far that they were left with no choice but to take him to court, and they got married on the day before Clara's 21st birthday.

Ortheil's edition of the letters between Robert and Clara is fun, but sometimes rather frustrating: he compiled it from published sources, and (at the time) there were not so many of Clara's letters available, so we often get long stretches of Robert-to-Clara and just have to imagine the replies. The letters are mostly from the period between 1832 and their marriage in 1840, but there is a handful in the closing pages of the book from periods when Clara was on tour by herself and some rather sad letters from Robert's time in the mental hospital in Endenich.

As a correspondent, Robert is the more entertaining of the two - his letters are full of the complicated up and down of his emotions and his imagined presence in Clara's life, wherever she was, interspersed with bits and pieces of musical gossip about his Leipzig friends and occasional jealousy about the people Clara was meeting. Clara is - as we would expect - much more sober and to-the-point, very much the professional musician complaining about bad instruments, noisy or passive audiences, ticket receipts and the rest. But it's fascinating to watch her grow up over the course of the book, moving from what seems to be not much more than a polite echoing of Robert's sentiments to a real feeling that she's as dependent on his love as he is on hers.
