The great Austrian dramatist and writer, who rarely tended to unctuousness, was so much carried away by the performances of the young Clara Wieck in Vienna in the winter of 1837/38 that he paid homage to her with a dedicatory poem, which Robert Schumann published on 26th of January in his “Neue Zeitschrift für Musik” after presumably receiving it via his correspondent in Vienna, Fischhof. A few months later Robert Schumann and Franz Grillparzer met in Vienna on occasion of a concert visit.
