Biography

Robert Schumann, a poetic background

Robert Schumann, the leading figure for all the musicians of the “1810 generation”, practically never left Germany where he shone for his critical writing and his musical compositions.

His father owned a bookshop and passed on his taste for literature introducing him to the poetry of Paul Richter and E.T.A. Hoffmann who would remain part of his universe.
