Schumann's Symphonic Etudes is one of the most astounding musical accomplishments of the 19th century. The set consists of a theme, seven variations and a lengthy finale. This work is as significant for Schumann as were the Goldberg Variations for Bach, or the Diabelli Variations for Beethoven. This edition contains informative background information as well as notes on the composer and the music. Included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.
