Tune of the Day: Träumerei

from Robert Schumann's “Kinderszenen”

Kinderszenen (“Scenes from Childhood”), Op. 15, is a set of thirteen pieces of music for piano written in 1838 by German composer Robert Schumann. In this work, the great romantic Pianist provides us with his adult reminiscences of childhood. Schumann had originally labeled this work Leichte Stücke (“Easy Pieces”). Likewise, the section titles were only added after the completion of the music, and Schumann described the titles as “nothing more than delicate hints for execution and interpretation”.

“Träumerei” is one of Schumann's best known pieces. It was even used as the title of a 1944 German biopic on Robert Schumann. “Träumerei” is also the love song for Robert and Clara Schumann in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katharine Hepburn as Clara Wieck Schumann.
