Description

Evaluation of all available sources on the basis of the latest findings in Schumann scholarship.

Notes on the historically informed performance of Schumann’s piano music (Ger/Eng).

Clear and uncluttered engraving with practical page turns.

Schumann’s “Arabeske” and “Blumenstück” were both composed while he was living in Vienna from October 1838 to April 1839, and are thus companions to such major piano pieces as the “Fantasy in C major” (op. 17), the “Humoresque” (op. 20) and the cycles “Nachtstücke” (op. 23) and “Faschingsschwank aus Wien” (op. 26). Unlike these masterpieces, they are more ingratiating, possibly as a concession to the Viennese public; but whether the “Arabeske” is a “delicate piece for the ladies”, as Schumann once maintained, is open to debate.

The editor has re-evaluated the surviving sources in this new edition, devoting special attention to the placement of slurs and incorporating the latest findings in Schumann scholarship. Rounding off the volume are a clear and uncluttered engraving, practical page turns and informative notes on historical performance practice by Sezi Seskir, a fortepiano specialist from Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA) with a special interest in Schumann’s pianism as well as 18th- and 19th-century performance practice.

Excellent piano repair service
Read More
My piano needed a repair to the polyester finish which I was very unsure about but Andy from the repair workshop was so friendly and helpful. The quality of the finish is perfect and I couldn’t be happier. The piano was collected from my home in Devon, repaired and delivered back to me in a very quick turn around time.
