Product Description

Abegg Variations Op 1 Composed by Robert Schumann. Arranged by Herttrich/Lampe. For Piano Folio. Published by G Henle Usa Inc. (Catalog # 51480087, UPC: 884088172923)

Who was Pauline, Countess of Abegg, the dedicatee of the first edition? Nowadays it is known that the matter revolves around a romantic mystification of the name of Meta Abegg, a friend from Schumann's youth, whose surname inspired Schumann to a theme on A-B-E-G-G (a-hb-e-g-g). The rewarding and sparkling piece - as it was described by a critic of the time - makes high technical demands, but is distinguished by a youthful freshness and ingenious virtuosity. With this work (the first, incidentally, that Schumann deemed worthy of publication), Henle has issued a good third of Schumann's piano works in revised versions that take account of the current state of research. The thoroughly-revised musical text is complemented by an informative preface and detailed commentary. Further revised volumes are in progress.
