Lot 787: Highly important German composer and pianist (1810–1856) whose distinctively lyrical musical language, especially evident in his keyboard works and art songs, made him one of the central figures of the German Romantic tradition. Partial ALS in German, signed "R. Schumann," one page, 8.25 x 2, March 19, 1839. Concluding portion of a letter in which Schumann writes that he hopes to speak with his correspondent personally within a day or so. In very good condition, with uniform toning, irregularly trimmed edges, and show-through from mounting remnants to reverse (affecting the last letter of the signature).
