One of the most remarkable scholarly publishing projects of its kind, the Edition Peters Robert Schumann piano series by Hans Joachim Köhler provides the best possible text to explore this infinitely poetic and inspired repertoire. Apart from its beautifully presented notation, carefully considered with the performer's needs foremost in mind, each volume contains an extensive commentary and concluding essay detailing the historical context and editorial process for each work. This volume contains two of Schumann's most famous pieces for, and about, children. The Album for the Young remains one of the classic works for children to play and learn, while Scenes from Childhood (Kinderszenen) reflects profoundly on what it means to be young.
