It is followed by thoughts on his music (at 15:07), German Romanticism (at 28:13), and the performance of his music (at 32:34). A live performance of 3 Lieder from Liederkreis, op. 39, with Kindra Scharich, mezzo-soprano, appears (at 35:29). The influence of Jean Paul Richter and E.T.A. Hoffmann on Schumann is then explored and illustrated with Papillons, op. 2, (at 48:41).
