Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4
Robert Schumann wrote 4 Symphonies, so it’s safe to assume that the Symphony No.4 in D minor, is his last, right? Well, not really. It was originally composed immediately following the completion of the First Symphony in 1841, but Schumann refrained from publishing the work until 1853, after he made revisions to the orchestration. This symphony is played without breaks between its four movements. In fact, Schumann at one time considered calling the piece "Symphonic Fantasia"--perhaps wondering if it was a genuine symphony.
