Robert Schumann's piano music was directly influenced by the prevailing artwork, literature and poetry of the day. The best way to learn piano music of the 19th century, and the best piano teacher is to study these masterpieces alongside regular piano practice.

Many of the paintings above were painted after Schumann's Fantasy pieces were actually written (1837) but can still serve as a direct inspiration to understanding his work.

"In Der Nacht" by Schumann is the 5th piece of the Fantasiestücke cycle and tells the passionate story of Hero and Leander. Although admittedly Schumann discovered this literary connection after having written the work.
