It can be said that Schumann’s music language (composing style) understanding, like many other romantic music composers, drags itself into new approaches by taking inspiration from realms such as literature, philosophy and nature. The relationship between Schumann’s musical structure and narration in piano quintet (Op.44) were examined in terms of the theories such as semiotic, persona and analogy. In the first movement of piano quintet (Op.44) was tried to be put forward persona (composer-work relation) of the work and the way in which many situation related to the individuality of the composer in the creation process. In the third movement of the work, findings on his influenced music and composition style were mentioned and examined certain points in terms of analogy (similarity-connotation).
