Schumann was a composer, pianist, and music critic. Regarded as one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era, Schumann left the study of law to pursue a career as a pianist but a hand injury ended his dream. Instead he turned his talents to composing and until 1840 he wrote exclusively for the piano. Later he composed for piano and orchestral works, and many Lieder.
