1841 was a year of overflowing creativity and output for Robert Schumann. Life is indeed strange. Not much earlier, Schumann was contemplating giving up composition in order to take up his family's publishing business, which was left beleaguered upon his father's death. Amongst the works complete in this year was his second symphony, the Symphony in D-minor.  It would later be revised and known as his fourth.
