|SCHUMANN||Symphony No. 1 “Four Day Symphony”|
Four days. That’s how long it took Robert Schumann to write his First Symphony. He spent his first 30 years living in the shadow of Beethoven’s symphonies writing pieces more modest in scale and then burst forth with an explosion of creative energy. Schumann didn’t need to write this piece to cement his place in history, but it certainly elevated it.
