Robert Alexander Schumann

June 8, 1810 - July 29, 1856
Robert Schumann was a German composer and an aspiring pianist whose performance career was cut short by a hand injury. Both an influential music critic and a man who suffered from a mental disorder, Schumann is acknowledged as being one of the most profound composers of the 19th century.

Franz Liszt transcribed a number of Schumann’s vocal works for piano.
