That an unsound mind should produce so many good sounds is one of the Great Paradoxes of the Romantic Era. Moreso than the hysterical Tchaikovsky, Schumann was truly, sadly mad. Because of this, his work has been denigrated by classical idolaters who would crowd out all but Schumann's piano concerto and Fourth Symphony to make way for yet another Beethoven sonata or Bach cantata. Any serious classical collection should include at least half a dozen works by Schumann, and another half-dozen by Weber for good measure.
