"Opus 18 and 19 are frail things for ladies": thus, with a wink of the eye, Schumann alluded to his wish to become "the favorite composer of every woman in Vienna." in fact, at this time he was having trouble making headway in Vienna at all, and his dream of settling there with Clara was fading fast. The work takes its distinctive lyrical flavour from the fact that he may have wanted to accommodate the lighter Viennese taste.
