Perhaps Schumann's greatest large-scale piano work, the "Fantasie" was written between 1836 and 1838 and dedicated to Franz Liszt. Intensely personal, it contains many melodic references to Schumann's then fiancÃ©e, Clara Wieck. This edition, based on the first edition by Breitkopf and HÃ¤rtel and the Clara Schumann edition, contains editorial material in parentheses. The background of this masterpiece and guidelines for analysis and performance form the introduction.
