The first volume of the Schumann correspondence contains letters written by Robert Schumann (1810-1856) and Clara Wieck Schumann (1819-1896) between 1832 and 1838. The letters document the major events in their lives: Robert's short-lived engagement to Ernestine von Fricken, his courtship of Clara, Friedrich Wieck's vehement opposition, and Clara and Robert's secret plans for marriage. The letters comment on their encounters with Franz Liszt, Frederic Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn, Ignaz Moscheles and others. They also describe Clara's triumphant concert tour of Austria and Robert's attempt to establish himself and his journal in Vienna.
