Kreisleriana is a Masterpiece!
Kreisleriana was Schumann's personal favorite among his piano compositions. It is gloriously tuneful and full of Schumannesque humor, wit and downright beauty. Schumann wanted to dedicate Kreisleriana to Clara Wieck, soon to be his betrothed, but Clara, fearing the wrath of her father, asked Schumann to renege. He ended up dedicating the work to, of all people, Frederic Chopin. I highly recommend this urtext edition to all who want to play Schumann.
