Short biography
Robert Schumann was one of the most important Romantic composers of the first half of the 19th century. He fell in love with and married the pianist Clara Wieck, the daughter of his teacher, against her father's wishes. In February 1854, Schumann threw himself into the Rhine River but was rescued. He then asked to be taken to a private asylum and died in 1856.
