Notes and Editorial Reviews

A film by Ernst Burger
Part I: Robert Schumann: Im wunderschönen Monat Mai (In the wonderful month of May)
Part II: Robert Schumann: Wer sich der Einsamkeit ergibt (Whoever to solitude surrenders)

Michael Tregor (German Voice of Robert Schumann) Sophie von Kessel (German Voice of Clara Schumann) Joachim Höppner (German Narrator)

Commemorating the 155th anniversary of Robert Schumann’s death, this film, inspired by the book by Ernst Burger, reveals his human side through a chronicle of his life from 1828 to his death in 1856. While the music features prominently, Burger’s focus on his biography and personality truly brings him to life. Contemporary depictions are interspersed with
Read more excerpts from his music performed by Leonard Bernstein and the Vienna Philharmonic, Vladimir Ashkenazy, András Schiff, Zoltán Kocsis, Hermann Prey and Daniel Barenboim with Sergiu Celibidache and the Munich Philharmonic, among many others. Though ending on a note of sadness, we are left with profound gratitude for the genius who left us so many musical masterworks.
