From the Publisher

Schumann’s “Arabeske” and “Blumenstück” were both composed while he was living in Vienna from October 1838 to April 1839, and are thus companions to such major piano pieces as the “Fantasy in C major” (Op.17), the “Humoresque” (Op.20) and the cycles “Nachtstücke” (Op.23) and “Faschingsschwank aus Wien” (Op.26). Unlike these masterpieces, they are more ingratiating, possibly as a concession to the Viennese public; but whether the “Arabeske” is a “delicate piece for the ladies”, as Schumann once maintained, is open to debate.

For our new edition of these popular pieces the editor has re-evaluated the surviving sources, devoting special attention to the placement of slurs and incorporating the latest findings in Schumann scholarship. Rounding off the volume are a clear and uncluttered engraving, practical page turns and informative notes on historical performance practice by Sezir Seskir, a fortepiano specialist from Bucknell University (Lewisburg, PA) with a special interest in Schumann’s pianism as well as 18th- and 19th-century performance practice.
