Edited by Konraad Wolff
Translated by Paul Rosenfeld
With twenty black-and-white illustrations
Schumann’s literary gifts and interests almost equaled his musical ones. From boyhood on he was drawn to literary expression, and his writings on music belong to the best among the romantic literature of the 19th century. The same fire, poetry, directness of expression, the same inventiveness we love in his compositions, also animated his prose.
This edition for the first time groups his articles and observations according to subject matter and individual composers. It is complete as far as Schumann’s writings on the great composers are concerned. All his reviews of the works by the masters, from Beethoven to Brahms, are included, some of them translated for the first time into English.
