  • 1842 was a very prolific year for Robert Schumann, witnessing the composer’s first forays into chamber music. While his wife, Clara, was concertizing in early 1842, Robert spent his time brooding and studying the string quartets of Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert. On Clara’s return in early April, Robert flew into a compositional frenzy that resulted in what musicologists refer to as his “Year of Chamber Music,” in which he wrote his quartet and quintet for piano and strings as well as several other chamber works.
