Notes & Reviews:

Robert Schuman is one of a number of 19th century artists whose creativity was dogged by mental illness. The works he wrote at the end of his life have particularly suffered from being seen soley through his prism. Madnenss in no way helps us understand his late style. A common misconception is that Schumann the composer was mad however it was Schumann the man, who was mad. Soo Park goes in depth with Schumann, finding the harmonies and sanity in his works.
