Schumann research at the Institute of Art Research and Musicology of the Technical University of Dresden started during the winter semester of 2007/2008 with a seminar on “Robert and Clara Schumann in Dresden”, organised by Professor Hans-Günter Ottenberg. The idea of a student research project was born, dealing with the issue whether traces of the Schumanns would still be found in Dresden today – in the town itself, in the concert schedules of the large music institutions, and in the minds of the citizens.

The first results were presented at a conference on the subject of “Robert and Clara Schumann in Dresden – Biographical, Compositional and Sociocultural Aspects”, held in May 2008, organised by the Institute of Art Research and Musicology of the Technical University of Dresden. Various aspects were discussed, such as the Schumanns’ circle of friends, the compositions created in Dresden, concert activities, or their living conditions.

Within the scope of the Robert Schumann Festival, held at the Great Garden Palace in Dresden in July 2010, new results were publicly introduced in the form of a presentation on “Robert and Clara Schumann in Dresden. An Exhibition in 12 Tables”, opened on 8th June 2010.

This cooperation with the Saxon Vocal Ensemble, the organiser of the Robert Schumann Festival Dresden in 2010, and the office of the Great Garden, marked an important highlight of the project which was completed at the end of 2011 with the publication of a book on “Glücklich-heiteres Befinden. Robert und Clara Schumanns Dresdner Jahre – eine Spurensuche” [Feeling happy and cheerful. Robert and Clara Schumanns’ Dresden years – a search for traces], edited by Hans-Günter Ottenberg. In future also, the Institute and students will take part in the Robert Schumann Festival in Dresden, organised by the Saxon Vocal Ensemble, particularly in the “Musical Country Outing” associated with it.
