Commitment to Music

Commitment to Music

(p.56) Chapter Four Commitment to Music

Eric Frederick Jensen

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes Robert Schumann's period of training under Friedrich Wieck. Schumann felt neglected by Wieck as the latter's primary concern was establishing his daughter's career as a pianist. Schumann asked Johann Nepomuk Hummel to be his teacher and sent him a solo selection from a piano concerto in F major that he had composed. Schumann later studied music with Heinrich Dorn, but Dorn ended the lessons with Schumann because of his lack of commitment.

Keywords:   Robert Schumann, Friedrich Wieck, Nepomuk Hummel, F major
