R. Schumann: Intermezzi Op. 4 & Piano Sonata in F-Sharp Minor, Op. 11
Schumann: Violin Sonatas Nos. 1 & 2
Violin Sonata No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 121
Violin Sonata No. 2 in D Minor, Op.
Schumann's second violin sonata was written in October/November 1851, only a few weeks after the first work for this combination of instruments. The highly virtuosic sonata, especially in the finale, is characterised by the close thematic dovetailing of the single movements. Wilhelm Joseph von Wasielewski, who later became the composer's biographer, reported that "smiling in his kind-hearted manner" the composer had said to him: "I did not like the first violin sonata; so I then wrote a second one, which is hopefully better." Schumann was apparently referring to the great differences in the expressive content: Whereas the first sonata with three movements seems rather melancholy and dark overall, the second "Great Sonata" with four movements is bursting with energy and ends in vibrant D major.This edition contains both marked and unmarked string parts.

Fantasy C Major: Op. 17
Fantasy C Major: Op.
Schumann's great C-major Fantasy, Op. 17, was originally intended to be published as a Sonata for Beethoven entitled Ruins, Trophies, Palms. Grand Sonata. Although he eventually abandoned this plan, he maintained the Fantasy's mighty design. Writing to his fiance Clara Wieck in March 1838, he called the first movement perhaps the most impassioned music I have ever written. Accordingly, it marks a point of culmination in his piano music, forming an exemplary combination of passion, delicacy, and virtuosity - a demanding, highly romantic work for ambitious pianists! Our volume presents a thorough revision of the musical text as well as an informative preface and text-critical commentary.
