Robert Alexander Schumann (1810-1856) was a German composer, aesthete and influential music critic. He is one of the most famous and important Romantic composers of the 19th century. Published in 1845 was his Piano Concerto No.1 in A Minor (op. 54), originally published as a one movement Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra, one of the most popular and oft-recorded of all piano concertos; pace Hutcheson "Schumann achieved a masterly work and we inherited the finest piano concerto since Mozart and Beethoven".
