“[Schumann’s] personal story is ultimately one of mental illness and tragic decline, it is all too easy to dismiss the most startling moments in his music as evidence of a mind that was less than whole, where more often than not, they are really manifestations of an entirely unique and utterly beautiful imagination.” – Jonathan Biss
