Robert Alexander Schumann (1810-1856)  He was born in Zwickau, Saxony (Southern Germany) and was composing piano music by age 7.  A hand injury kept him from excelling as a performer but his music teacher (Fredrich Wieck) encouraged him to become a composer.  He married Clara Wieck (the teacher's daughter) who was also an accomplished pianist.  He relocated to Leipzig  (another city of Saxony) where he co-founded a publication named "The New Journal for Music."  Besides his many piano compositions, he produced 4 symphonies, an opera, and other orchestral and chamber music pieces.  His most famous piano works are "Carnaval,", "Kreislenana," and the "Traumerei."  All of these continue to be part of current classical piano programs in our day.
