Description

Robert Schumann wrote his Fantasy Pieces for clarinet and piano in the course of two days in February 1849. Only a few days later they were premiered by Clara Schumann and the Dresden clarinetist Johann Gottlieb Kotte. Initially choosing the title Soirée Pieces for his works, Schumann finally decided to have them published as Fantasy Pieces, thereby emphasizing their poetical aspects. These connotations are also at the centre of clarinetist Elisabeth Eichenberg's notes on interpretation with special reference to the contemporary aesthetics of the clarinet sound. The edition is based on the first edition published in 1849 and also incorporates subsequent corrections in Schumann's personal copy. The compositional manuscript that has survived served as an important corrective. Besides the original clarinet part in A the edition also includes a transposed part for the B clarinet in order to make these standard works of the Romantic clarinet repertoire available to a wider circle of the clarinet community.

Reviews

(…) L'édition est basée sur la première édition publiée en 1849 et intègre également des corrections ultérieures de la copie personnelle de Schumann. (…) Outre la partie de clarinette en la pour laquelle elle fut conçue, l'édition comprend une partie transposée pour la clarinette en si bémol afin de rendre ces ouvrages emblématiques du répertoire romantique de la clarinette disponibles à un cercle plus large.
