All his life, Robert Schumann had to manage two different personalities within himself. He even gave them names: Eusebius (his melancholy nature) and Florestan (his passionate side). In his literary work he would often refer to them and write from their different points of view. In his Violin Sonatas, you can hear both Eusebius and Florestan, holding forth! This is the first of a series - next week: Sonata No. 2.
