sku: 49-945897
An interesting attempt to transfer Robert Schumann's romantic, lyrical music to the guitar. New tonal possibilities present themselves for the repertoire, since Schumann never composed an original piece for guitar. Contains pieces from the piano cycles Album für die Jugend, Kinderszenen and Albumblätter, but also some lieder like Mondnacht or Im wunderschönen Monat Mai. A highlight is the original Schumann transcriptions by Francisco Tárrega (1852-1909) which prove guitarists studied Schumann's music as early as the 19th century. Ideal for concerts and music lessons or for private music-making. The pieces are of easy to intermediate difficulty so even amateur guitarists will enjoy playing them. Notation only. 47 pp.
