About the Author:

PETER OSTWALD, M.D. (1928–1996), was a professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, a musician, and an author of numerous books. His widow, LISE DESCHAMPS OSTWALD, is a concert pianist and was his long-time assistant.

Review:

"Peter Ostwald, a San Francisco psychiatrist who is also a trained musician, has dug deeply . . . and applied his professional knowledge to the fashioning of a fascinating, perceptive psychobiography of the nineteenth-century Romantic master." -- Arthur Hepner, Boston Globe

"Schumann is a remarkable piece of work. The author obviously loves the composer's music and writes about him--and Clara too--with compassion and understanding. . . . Soberly and objectively, it unearths information that no previous Schumann research--in English, at least--has come near duplicating." -- Harold C. Schonberg, New York Times Book Review
