Robert Schumann was a critic and a composer, and in his words he was often critical of the "Philistines" in music - those who promoted conservative and ordinary talent. He gathered together a group of personalities called the "Davidsbundler", to fight the Philistines, and even wrote this set of intensely personal dances to celebrate this "Band of David". We hear it played by Yaron Kohlberg.
