The great carnival that is life is peopled with an array of colourful characters, jostling for our attention. Nobody appreciated this more than Schumann, who regularly created or called upon a host of personalities with whom to populate his music. Yet this sociable outlook was offset by Schumann's own mental fragility, through which he understood the subtler, smaller-scale implications of life's carnival: that within each of us we may experience the tussle between contrasting, even conflicting calls upon our attention; that our own individual characters may be divided into different versions, different variations, of ourselves.
