Romances for a young violinist

You can be rightfully pleased with what is coming! announced Clara Schumann self-confidently in late 1855 to the 24-year-old Joachim upon sending him a copy of the Three Romances op. 22 for violin and piano that had just been published by Breitkopf & Hartel. There is no doubt that her acquaintance with the young virtuoso had stimulated her to write the pieces already back in 1853. The two remained linked to the Romances after publication as well: Clara Schumann and Joachim often successfully performed them in their concerts in later years.

After having temporarily fallen into oblivion, the Romances did not make their way more lastingly into the chamber music repertoire until 1983, when a reprint of the first edition was published. With the release of this new edition, today's interpreters can also be rightfully pleased with Clara Schumann's Opus 22.

Die Urauffuhrung fand am 9. November 1835 unter der Leitung von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy im Leipziger Gewandhaus statt - mit der Komponistin am Klavier. Die vollstandige Partitur des Konzerts ist nicht uberliefert. Hauptquelle der Urtext-Ausgabe ist die Erstausgabe des Klavierparts von 1837 der als Beilage die Orchesterstimmen enthalt. The first performance of the work took place in the Leipzig Gewandhaus on 9 November 1835. Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy conducted and Clara Schumann played the solo. No complete score of the the Concerto has survived. The main source of the Urtext edition is the first edition of the piano part of 1837 which contains the orchestral parts as a supplement.
