When Robert Schumann unearthed a trove of
Franz Schubert’s forgotten scores during a trip to
Vienna, he knew he had discovered something
special. Here were achingly beautiful melodies,
symphonies bursting with rhythmic vitality—an
untapped world of mysterious, enchanting sound.
“Clara, today I was transported.
A symphony of Franz Schubert’s
was played at the rehearsal.
If only you had been there.”
ROBERT SCHUMANN,
in a letter to his fiancée Clara Wieck
