Schumann, Robert Alexander
Robert Alexander Schumann, a German composer and music critic, is widely considered as one of the greatest musicians of the Romantic era. He has composed some of the best music and some of the worst, becoming a strange, troublesome talent. He was severely influenced during his manic episodes by what was most definitely a psychotic illness. His life ended with a plunge into madness, induced by syphilis, early and miserably. When he was younger, he performed his most sufficient work in limited forms: piano work and songs.
