Schumann’s Dramatic Works

Schumann’s Dramatic Works

(p.228) Chapter Twelve Schumann’s Dramatic Works

Eric Frederick Jensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses Robert Schumann’s interest in German opera. In February 1840, at the time when he had turned away from the piano and was beginning to write songs, Schumann became interested once again in opera. He seemed more interested in creating a nationalistic opera, and it was Faust that held the greatest promise for him. He composed more of Faust while still working on Till and The Corsair. The first complete performance of Schumann's Faust was presented in 1862 in Cologne under the direction of Ferdinand Hiller.

Keywords:   Robert Schumann, German opera, Till, The Corsair, Faust, Ferdinand Hiller
