Robert Schumann was the quintessential Romantic. His life and his music were deeply interwoven; to study one is to study the other. He began by creating a dazzling series of great piano works, then moved on to conquer each of the classical forms in their turn, creating masterpieces in every genre. We will study the life and the music together to achieve a full portrait of a complex, brilliant and troubled genius. Some knowledge of classical forms is helpful, but not required.
