In addition to covering the "familiar forty" - the much-performed songs Schumann composed in and around 1840 while trying to win the hand of Clara Wieck - Miller takes an in-depth look at the lesser known early and later songs. In particular, he focuses on the rich and varied repertoire of Schumann's later years, challenging the conventional view that these works reflect a decline in the composer's powers."--BOOK JACKET.
