Schumann�s background had all the potentiality of a man of letters. Brought up amongst books, he developed strong literary tastes. His father, a bookseller and publisher, was helped by his young son at the age of 14 who made a contribution to a work published by his father called �The Most Famous Men of all Countries and Periods�. At 17 he was writing poetry and setting his poems to music. He has come to be regarded as one of the greatest composers of the German �Romantic School�; his music is full of emotion, beautiful sound and fanciful ideas and he was often referred to as �the literary man as musician�. His output for his short life was vast; symphonies, incidental music, concertos, chamber music, choral works with orchestra, songs etc., but his literary influence and contribution which pervaded his piano literature for his young students is immense, especially in his Album fur die Jugend (1848), Three Sonatas for Young People (1853), Kinderszenen (1838) and various duets.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
