Schumann - 3 Fantasiestucke Op73 - Cello Henle HN422
An authoritative Urtext edition of Fantasy Pieces Op. 73 by Robert Schumann, edited by Ernst Herttrich for Cello and Piano. Contains marked and unmarked cello parts with fingering and bowing by Reiner Ginzel. The circumstances in which these poetic ŒñSoirí©e PiecesŒî (thus their original title) came into being are quite surprising. In 1849 Dresden was seized byviolent political turmoil that ultimately forced Schumann to flee with Clara to the countryside. Yet none of this is apparent in the music of these three pieces, whose idyllic character signifies a longing for harmony and seclusion. Originally conceived for the clarinet, they were accompanied by alternative parts for violin and cello as early as the original print. We have subjected our editions to a thoroughgoing critique and include a section of detailed editorial notes.
