The Henle catalogue contains almost all of Schumann's works for piano in top quality editions. With the publication of op. 32 we are filling an important gap. In order to help his "Neue Zeitschrift fur Musik" to become more successful, Schumann gave it a practical use: he enclosed the music for short works. The Bach-like "Gigue" and "Fughetta" also appeared here. The "Scherzo" and "Romance" are on the other hand Romantic forms. It was only later that he put the pieces in their current sequence. The renowned Schumann pianist Leif Ove Andsnes kindly allowed us to use his fingerings in our edition. It is a compelling alternative to the frequently used albums in teaching. And a real discovery for pianists who want to play Schumann's magnificent music.
