Description: Robert Schumann, one of the most beloved composers of the Romantic movement, embodied the passion and imaginative spirit of his age. This important new biography recreates the dynamics of this man and his music with unprecedented range, offering new insight into his final years and his lasting musical achievements.

Drawing on Schumann's recently published journals and letters, and new research, author Eric Jensen renders a balanced portrait with both scholarly authority and engaging clarity. Biographical chapters alternate with commentary on Schumann's piano, choral, symphonic, and operatic works, demonstrating how the circumstances of his life helped shape the music the wrote at various periods. Chronicling the forbidden romance of Robert and Clara, Jensen offers a nuanced look at the evolution of their relationship. He also follows Schumann's creative musical criticism, which championed the careers of Chopin, Liszt, and Brahms and challenged the musical tastes of nineteenth-century Europe. Most importantly, he presents new evidence that Schumann -- locked away in the asylum at Endenich -- had returned sufficiently to health to justify his removal from confinement a year before his death. Like the innovations of his final compositions from 1845-1854, his sanity was overlooked and misunderstood by his contemporaries. Jensen corrects the historical record, illuminating the tragedy of Schumann's final days and refuting the common dismissal of his final works as the result of an unstable mind.

Schumann is the first authoritative biography of the composer written for general readers as well as music students and historians.
