Schumann—Kreisleriana

Lecture no. 10 from the course: The 23 Greatest Solo Piano Works

Schumann—Kreisleriana

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 50 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Trace the origins of this landmark of Romanticism in Schumann’s fascination with the novels of E. T. A. Hoffman, his anguished courtship of future wife Clara Wieck, and his impulse to create art that fused music, literature, and autobiography. In the eight extraordinary movements of Kreisleriana, consider how Schumann writes a spiritual diary in sound, using expressive thematic melodies and harmonic complexity to reveal rich metaphoric meaning and his own innermost feelings and fears.
