APPENDIX C
Personalia

Alkan, Charles Henri Valentin (1813–88), French pianist and composer. Alkan was the greatest virtuoso of his age but, because of his reclusive nature, performed infrequently. His works are distinctive and original. Unfortunately, Schumann was familiar only with a few of his salon pieces.

Arnim, Bettina von (1785–1859), writer and composer. Sister of Clemens Brentano and wife of Ludwig Achim von Arnim. She wrote reminiscences of Beethoven and Goethe, which were criticized for their flights of fancy. Outspoken and idealistic, she championed women's rights and defiantly opposed discrimination against minorities (including Jews and the mentally ill).

Arnim, LudwigAchim von (1781–1831), poet, novelist, dramatist, and critic. Coeditor of The Youth's Magic Horn, and creator of fiction of great imagination. Husband of Bettina and close friend of her brother, the poet Clemens Brentano.

Bennett, William Sterndale (1816–75), English pianist, composer, and teacher. Mendelssohn served as his mentor. Conductor of the London Philharmonic from 1856 to 1866, and professor of music at Cambridge University from 1856 until his death.

Berwald, Franz (1796–1868), Swedish composer, active in Germany and Austria. Little regarded during his lifetime, his chamber compositions and four symphonies are amongthe most innovative of the 1840s and 1850s.

Brendel, Franz (1811–68), editor of the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik from 1845. Teacher at the Leipzig Conservatory, and friend of Schumann. He became a strongadvocate of Wagner and Liszt.

Brentano, Clemens (1778–1842), poet, novelist, and dramatist. Editor with Arnim of The Youth's Magic Horn. In later years, he became a devout Catholic, and lamented the frivolity of his earlier work.
