Schumann Scenes From Childhood, Opus 15 by Robert Schumann. Edited by Keith Snell. For piano. Neil A. Kjos Master Composer Library. Late Intermediate. Sheet music. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.GP397).
Although Schumann usually wrote the music before he thought of the title, these short character pieces at the intermediate level reflect a romantic mood or scene depicted in the title. Keith Snell has carefully edited all thirteen pieces in the collection with careful attention to pedaling, phrasing, and practical fingering. Student favorites include the ever popular Of Foreign Lands and People, Curious Story, Important Event, Knight of the Rocking Horse, Riverie.
