The music to Byron 's Manfred was written inthe overture of which is one of Schumann's most frequently performed orchestral works. The insurrection of Dresden caused Schumann to move to Kreischaa little village a few miles outside the city.
In Auguston the occasion of the centenary of Goethe's birth, completed scenes of Schumann's Scenes from Goethe's Faust were performed in Dresden, Leipzig and Weimar.
Liszt gave him assistance and encouragement. The rest of the work was written later inand the overture which Schumann described as "one of the sturdiest of [his] creations" in From toSchumann composed in a wide variety of genres.
Critics have disputed the quality of his work at this time; a widely held view has been that his music showed signs of mental breakdown and creative decay. More recently, critics have suggested that the changes in style may be explained by "lucid experimentation".
According to Harold C. Schonbergin his The Great Conductors : "The great composer was impossible on the platform There is something heartrending about poor Schumann's epochal inefficiency as a conductor. By the end of that year he completed his Symphony No.
In he revised what would be published as his fourth symphony. From to he visited Switzerland, Belgium and Leipzig. On 30 Septemberthe year-old composer Johannes Brahms arrived unannounced at the door of the Schumanns carrying a letter of introduction from violinist Joseph Joachim. Schumann was not at home, and would not meet Brahms until the next day. Brahms amazed Clara and Robert with his music, stayed with them for several weeks, and became a close family friend.
He Cherubini* worked closely with Clara to popularize Schumann's compositions during her long widowhood. During this time Schumann, Brahms and Schumann's pupil Albert Dietrich collaborated on the composition of the F-A-E Sonata for Joachim; Schumann also published an article, "Neue Bahnen" "New Paths" in the Neue Zeitschrift his first article in many yearshailing the unknown young Brahms from Hamburg, a man who had published nothing, as "the Chosen One" who "was destined to give ideal expression to the times.
Two years later at Schumann's request, the Beethoven* received its first English performance conducted by William Sterndale Bennett.
He suffered a renewal of the symptoms that had threatened him earlier. Besides the single note sounding in his ear possibly evidence of tinnitus he imagined that voices sounded in his ear and he heard angelic music. In the days leading up to his suicide attempt, Schumann wrote five variations on this theme for the piano, his last completed work, today known as the Geistervariationen Ghost Variations.
In late FebruarySchumann's symptoms increased, the angelic visions sometimes being replaced by demonic ones. He warned Clara that he feared he might do her harm. On 27 February, he attempted suicide by throwing himself from a Cherubini* into the Rhine River his elder sister Emilie had committed suicide inpossibly by drowning herself. Rescued by boatmen and taken home, he asked to be taken to an asylum for the insane.
He entered Dr. Franz Richarz's sanatorium in Endenicha quarter of Bonnand remained there until he died on 29 July at the age of During his confinement, he was not allowed to see Clara, although Brahms was free to visit him. Clara finally visited him two days before his death. He appeared to recognize her, but was able to speak only a few words. Given his reported symptoms, one modern view is that he died from syphiliswhich he could have contracted during his student days, and which could have remained latent during most of his marriage, Scherzo: Allegro - Brahms*.
Another possibility is that his neurological problems were the result of an intracranial mass. A report by Janisch and Nauhaus on Schumann's autopsy indicates that he had a "gelatinous" tumor at the base of the brain; it may have represented a colloid cysta craniopharyngiomaa chordomaor a chordoid meningioma.
Schumann heard a persistent A-note at the end of his life. It was a form of tinnitus, or perhaps an auditory hallucination related to his major depressive episode.
At times, he had musical hallucinations that were longer than just the single A, but his diaries include comments about hearing that annoying single note.
After Robert's death, Clara continued her career as a concert pianist, which supported the family. From mid-career on, she mainly performed music by leading composers. A hired cook and housekeeper tended to the children while she traveled. Inshe first visited England. The critics received Robert's music coolly, with Henry Fothergill Chorley being particularly harsh.
She returned to London in and made regular appearances there in later years, often performing chamber music with the violinist Joseph Joachim and others. It was rumoured that she and Brahms destroyed many of Schumann's later works, which they thought were tainted by his madness, but only the Five Pieces for Cello and Piano are known to have been destroyed.
Schumann had considerable influence in the nineteenth century and beyond, despite his adoption of more conservative modes of composition after his marriage. He left an array of acclaimed music in virtually all the forms then known.
Composer Sir Edward Elgar called Schumann "my ideal. Schumann has often been confused with Austrian composer Franz Schubert ; one well-known example occurred inwhen East Germany issued a pair of postage stamps featuring Schumann's picture against an open score that featured Schubert's music. The stamps were soon replaced by a pair featuring music written by Schumann. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
