Robert Schumann composed his Fantasie in C, Op. 17 in 1836 and today it remains an important part of nineteenth-century piano repertoire. Schumann preceded the work with a poem by Friedrich Schlegel, though Schumann's purpose for this is unclear. This performer's guide to the Fantasie details aspects of the work that are important to a well-informed interpretation including biographical context, form, unity, and practical suggestions and applies these aspects in order to elucidate the meaning of the poem.
