The most famous of the fantasies, theWanderer Fantasy, now appears in a separate edition.
While Schubert was playing the Wanderer Fantasy for a circle of friends, he faltered and exclaimed impatiently: The Devil should play this stuff!
Yet it wasn't the Devil but Liszt - like Schumann a great admirer of the piece - who later arranged theWanderer Fantasyfor piano and orchestra and again for two pianos. It was also Liszt who gave the work the nickname it has retained to the present day.

    I have always loved this very challenging piece. Even challenging to the composer himself at a certain point in the score. It’s a great piece if one wants to stretch their limits in playing a piece such as this one. Barenreiter, as always, does a bang-up job in...

    printing, etc. but the “Wanderer Fantasie” is a very tough piece to execute. I must admit I haven’t made it all the way through yet, but I admire the compositional style and melodies, which are both typical Schubert.
