More about SPOHR



Robert Schumann
Conclusion from his review in Neue Zeitschrift für Musik
about Spohr's Symphony No. 7 in C major, Op. 121:

''Laßt uns ihm folgen, in der Kunst, im Leben,
in seinem ganzen Streben!
[...]
 Er sei uns mit unseren grössten Deutschen
ein leuchtendes Vorbild.''
Let us follow him in art, in life, in all his striving!
[...]
May he stand with our greatest Germans as a shining example.
