Robert Schumann: Toccata Op.7 - Versions 1830 And 1834 (Henle Urtext)

Books | Piano

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Robert Schumann
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Schumann began work on the Toccata Op.7 when he was only 20 years old. At the time he was studying law, following his family's wishes. He did not, however, intend to have his first manuscript, entitled "Exercice", published; it was only when he was finding his way as a musician that he turned to the sketches again. Similar to his approach with the Paganini studies, he endeavoured to combine virtuosity with musical content. The print version of this "Toccata" differed greatly from the first ideas for the "Exercice". The autograph of the final version is missing, although the "Exercice" has survived in the form of Schumann's manuscript. It is reproduced in the appendix of this revised edition of the first publication.
