Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen were written and published in 1838. In this work, Schumann provides us with his long-forgotten experiences of childhood. Schumann had originally written 30 movements for this work, but chose 13 for the final version.
Träumerei was the title of a 1944 German biographical film on Robert Schumann. The musical work is also the love song for Robert and Clara Schumann in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katharine Hepburn as Clara Schumann Wieck.
