Kreisleriana op. 16

Kreisleriana op. 16 (Piano Solo). Composed by Robert Schumann. Edited by Ernst Herttrich. For Piano. Piano (Harpsichord), 2-hands. Henle Music Folios. Urtext edition-paper bound. Classical Period. SMP Level 10 (Advanced). Single piece. Introductory text, performance notes and fingerings. 49 pages. G. Henle #HN253. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480253).

With introductory text, performance notes and fingerings. Classical Period. 9x12 inches.

Kapellmeister Kreisler, the ingenious and eccentric conductor created by E.T.A. Hoffmann, served as the inspiration for this composition of 1838. Schumann set out to recreate this fictitious character in music. The result was “Kreisleriana,” a set of fantastical, at times scurrilous and always seemingly improvised pieces that directly reflect the romantic sensibility that Kreisler personifies. If ever music was demonic, it would have to be these eight superb piano fantasies that Schumann tossed off in a few days! Ernst Herttrich's thoroughly revised new edition provides a thoughtful preface by this Schumann connoisseur and discusses the major editorial problems while giving them exemplary solutions.

  • May 22, 2007 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.
