Heinrich Heine’s Deutschland ein Wintermärchen is a satirical epic detailing his journey from Paris to Hamburg during the winter of 1843. The work was censored after its publication because of its anti-German language and satirical, political caricatures. Robert Schumann’s Märchenerzählungen are similarly witty and satirical as is György Kurtág’s Hommage à R. Schumann inspired by his predecessors piece for clarinet, piano and viola.
