Schumann laid the foundation for modern music through formal innovation, poetic and literary association, and a fantastical sense of the irrational and the subconscious.

In addition to historical and social context, this course will consider Schumann’s orchestral music, lieder, and piano music—together with his wife, Clara Schumann, for whom he wrote many of his best-known piano pieces.
