Tune of the Day: Romance by Schumann
arranged for Flute and Piano
Schumann wrote his three Romances for Oboe and Piano in December 1849. His efforts were not tied to a commission or request by a prominent soloist of the day, and this is probably the reason why from the technical point of view they are not particularly challenging pieces. In the first of the three, marked “Nicht schnell” (“Not quickly”), the soloist plays a lovely theme, supported by imaginative accompaniment on piano.
Thanks to István for suggesting this piece!
