Robert Schumann (1810 – 1856) was a seminal German composer and esteemed music critic. When his piano teacher assured him that the could be the most accomplished piano virtuoso in Europe, he dedicated his energies to this end. However, a severe injury to his hand meant that his dream could never be realised. Instead, Schumann focused on composing. He chiefly wrote compositions for the piano until 1840, at which time he began branching out, composing for orchestra and writing symphonies, operas, and other choral and chamber pieces. Some of his most famous compositions include: “ Kinderszenen”, “Album für die Jugend”, “Blumenstück”, and the “Sonatas” and “Albumblätter”. Today, Schumann is generally considered to have been one of the most important composers during the Romantic era.
