The publication of several large-scale instrumental works by Franz Schubert in the late 1920s and 1930s elicited little reaction from contemporary critics. However, the critical voice that broke the near silence with the greatest regularity belonged to Robert Schumann. Between 1834 and 1840, Schumann turned repeatedly to Schubert's instrumental music, illuminating the special magic of pieces that ranged in weight from the comparatively slight 16 Deutsche und 2 Ecossaisen to the colossal Symphony in C major. This chapter speculates on what is was that drew Schumann to Schubert's music.
