Now what would Schumann have made of all this? We don't have to guess, because Schumann devoted the lengthiest critical article of his career to the Symphonie fantastique, issued in the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik in six installments between 3 July and 14 August 1835. Its length was due in part to its being not just a review but a defense against the captious reviews of others, notably François-Joseph Fétis, whose review Schumann printed in translation over two issues of the journal preceding his own. It was so detailed and diligent that Schumann later submitted it, successfully, for a doctor's degree.
