In response to failures, Schumann once again turned more to composing during his time in Dusseldorf. He wrote many new works - also ones for the piano for which he had only written a few pieces after his first years of composing. Bach's music played an important role in the Schumanns' house at the time; this is mirrored in the fact that Schumann turned to baroque forms again. However, he wanted his fugues to be understood as "character pieces, just in a stricter form." The "Piano Pieces in Fughetta Form" op. 126, published in our catalogue for the first time, unite the strict formal demands with romantic expression in a masterly manner.
