Robert Schumann and Mascot Ziff
Author: Opal Wheeler
Hardcover without dust jacket, in fair condition, fading on the spine. With illustrations by Christine Price.
From the time he was a little boy, playing with his beloved cat, Ziff, in his home village in Saxony, until he became the famous composer, friend of Mendelssohn, Chopin, and Liszt, Robert Schumann lived happily and pleasantly. Unlike many of his contemporaries, he had few major problems to overcome. His work, his family life, all brought him the reward of renown and joy. Even the stiff finger which virtually ended his career as a musician was the means of emphasizing his genius as a composer. Opal Wheeler has written a most engaging story for children of the great man's life, and the carefully chosen selections from his compositions which have been added, make this a distinguished acquisition to any young reader's library.
