(p.17) Chapter Two University Years

Eric Frederick Jensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the struggle of Robert Schumann during his college years in Leipzig, and his relationship with Friedrich Wieck. Schumann was obliged by his parents to study law in Leipzig. During those years, he devoted his energy to studying music instead of law. At this time, he was contemplating how to make music a career, but was uncertain of the steps to take. His inaction and indecision persisted for two years until he met Wieck. After some time, he began to take piano lessons from Wieck regularly.

Keywords:   Robert Schumann, Leipzig, Friedrich Wieck
