Composed in Vienna in 1838 along with several other shorter pieces, Schumann's Arabesque has found a permanent place in the general piano repertoire. It may owe its lightness and grace to Schumann's urge to “rise up and become the favorite composer of all the ladies of Vienna.” As a result, the Arabesque is a prime example of entertainment music in the best sense of the word. The musical text of this new edition has been thoroughly revised and provided with an informative preface and editorial notes.

    This is a melody everyone has heard but not everyone knows by name. It is addictive to play. Although difficult enough, you will want to keep playing it over and over again so that you will eventually master it.

  • Октябрь 10, 2008 wonderfully refreshing

    This piece is not too difficult and is a delightfully interesting piece. Nice contrasts and repeated section make it attainable by anyone who wants to practice some. Light and airy and wonderful.

    This a wonderfully challenging piece of piano music that I love working on. This edition is an excellent one for clarity and fingering. It is also inexpensive.
