    Op 37 No. He later worked closely with Clara to popularize Schumann's compositions during her long widowhood. Peters Edition contents plus first lines in italics : Op 29 No 1. 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. This information extends that given by Sams, and perhaps just as significantly it is presented in a much more engaging and literate style.

    Within each of these keys, the general structure is comparable, but the last significant section mm 22—28 is strikingly different. The digressions from the norm occur in the last stanza, where the vocal line varies in pitch, but retains the same rhythmic structure. An injury ended his hopes of a career as a virtuoso, confining him to writing compositions, the first of which were published in He devoted to composing chamber music, including the Piano Quintet in E-flatOp.

    Many of his best-known piano pieces were written for his wife, the pianist Clara Schumann. An accident to one of the fingers of his right hand, which put an end to his hopes of a career as a virtuoso, was perhaps not an unmitigated misfortune, since it confined him to composition. Although these omissions are disappointing, they are perhaps understandable given the nature of Finson's book, and they pale in comparison to his overall achievement. In most cases, he succinctly describes Schumann's relation to the poets and the source the composer used for each of his texts. This has the effect of creating unexpected harmonic tension, heightening the emotions of the narrator.

Texts of the vocal works of Robert Schumann book

In counterpoint with the remarks of these personae, Krebs develops an original theory of metrical conflict by adapting the concepts of consonance and dissonance to metrical analysis. In Schumann had become engaged to Ernestine von Fricken, but long before the engagement was formally broken off Jan.

Finson subdivides his chapters by opus number but unlike Sams he does not give the full text or translation of every song. He appeared to recognize her, but was able to speak only a few words. After four years at a private school, the boy entered the Zwickau Gymnasium high school in and remained there for eight years.

On February 26 he asked to be taken to a lunatic asylum, and the next day he attempted suicide by drowning. Herbertrepr. Robert Schumann had been mentally unstable all his life, suffering periodic attacks of severe depression and nervous exhaustion.

From late to he and Clara lived in Dresdenwhere his health was gradually restored. For example, Harald Krebs's highly influential exploration of Schumann's rhythm, Fantasy Pieces: Metrical Dissonances in the Music of Robert Schumann New York: Oxford University Press,includes analyses of the rhythmic dissonances and their expressive function in some of Schumann's well-known lieder.

In the grander scheme of the poem, it can be said that von Eichendorff aimed to create an ethereal, dream-like scene, in order for the listener to understand the feelings of the narrator.

He made his debut as a conductor—a role in which he was invariably ineffective—with its first performance in December of that year. He shows that Schumann was quite capable of dealing with the practical and financial matters of publishing his works--a side of his personality that is not explored in other publications.

Schumann's complex handling of rhythm is also given little attention. Here is a transposition to Gto make it a bit easier for the tenor - but it takes the soprano down to B below middle C.

And my soul stretched Flew through the hushed lands, as if it were flying home. An accident to one of the fingers of his right hand, which put an end to his hopes of a career as a virtuoso, was perhaps not an unmitigated misfortune, since it confined him to composition.

Richard Miller guides the reader through the interpretation of all of Schumann's solo and duet songs, drawing thoroughly on Schumann's compositional style and its historical background.

The red flashes of lightning are clearly aligned to show that his home life is no longer something that he feels safe calling his own.

On Feb. However, due to space the harmonic analysis often does not go much further and one rarely gets a sense of the unusual quality of some of Schumann's harmonic progressions, or the frequency with which he begins or ends on a dissonance. In discussions of the texts of individual songs, Finson usually references at least one element of the original poem's structure or general style, for example its meter, and he notes any changes that Schumann made to the text.

Finson astutely observes that she surely must also have influenced the actual composition of some of the vocal works. Her own compositions were mainly piano pieces and songs.Additional Physical Format: Online version: Schumann, Robert, Texts of the vocal works of Robert Schumann.
