Noted for their extraordinary romantic warmth and imagination, Schumann's piano pieces are among the very greatest ever written. Selected from works originally published by Breitkopf & Härtel, this collection includes 15 pieces: Intermezzi, Op .4; Impromptus, Op. 5; Supplement to Op. 13; Romances, Op. 28; Four Marches, Op. 76; Morning Songs, Op. 133; and more.
An authoritative compilation of more than 100 of the great composer's Lieder, this volume features well-beloved melodies set to the poetry of Heine, Goethe, Burns, Byron, and others. Reprinted from the Breitkopf and Härtel edition edited by Clara Schumann, it includes new translations of lyrics and a glossary of German musical terms.
In addition to his genius as a composer, Schumann was a gifted critic who wrote perceptive essays, articles, and reviews for his influential musical journal, Neue Zeitschrift fur Musik. Written from 1834 to 1844, these 61 pieces include evaluations of Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert, and other giants. Articles appear in chronological order with ample annotations.
