The Cello Concerto by Robert Schumann is a piece, which was created in positive psychic atmosphere; the composer suffered under bipolar disorder of personality and wrote the concerto in the manic phase. The centre of his interest was the adaptation and the depth of message of the soloist part, so that he missed several details in the orchestration; today the piece is played most often in the revised version by Dmitri Shostakovich. The poetics of Robert Schumann influenced partly also the Englishman Sir Edward Elgar; however, he endued it with typical British atmosphere with characteristic melodics and spacetime understood in his own way. The Symphony No. 1 is an extensive and demanding project.
