Robert Schumann: Bunte Blätter Op. 99

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: HN81
Composer: Robert Schumann
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

In Schumann’s middle years there was a longer period in which he favoured larger groups of instruments. Although he composed a few single pieces for Piano, they remained unpublished at first. It was only after the resounding success of the “Album for the Young” that he once again turned to several of these pieces to combine them in an album. Originally the collection was to be called “Spreu” (chaff) but the publisher was not convinced by this. Some of the altogether 34 pieces were finally published under the title “Coloured Leaves”, which quickly became a bestseller. As part of our Schumann revision we have now produced a new version of this edition to reflect the latest in scholarly research.

        I bought 'Bunte Blaetter, Opus 99' because I am interested in 'album leafs'. These are short, often uncomplicated compositions, which composers give to patrons, friends, students or other composers. The 'leaf' I'm going to play is I, No. 4, which is slow, simple and very beautiful.
