I had not thought of Florestan and Eusebius both being responsible for the same piece at once, but that's an interesting idea.


Well, we know how Schumann ended :lol:

(Actually, he basically died not very far from where I live).

Probably the harshest moments in the set are the first theme of Aufschwung and the very end of In the Night.


The latter is my favourite piece in the set! I just love it. Have you recorded it already?

I love that one too! I performed it in October but haven't made the recording yet.

I performed and recorded it back in 2010 but haven't played it since. I'm very much looking forward to listening to your recording! Are you going to do the whole of opus 12?

Yes, that's my plan. Numbers 6-8 are in the learning stages now. And as you can hear from this re-recording of Aufschwung, the Steinway's tuning is starting to slip so I don't think I'll do any more recording till the work pianos get tuned in Feb.

Right, here is a re-recording of Aufschwung from today. Once again it's two different takes spliced together, with more attention to note issues when choosing the two "best" takes this time. It's also a little slower which helps both with accuracy and with forte sound.
