Schumann: Novelette, Op. 21, No.1 Another beautiful work of art by Schumann. I could really get into Schumann. None of my teachers ever assigned anything by Schumann to me, so I never knew much about his music. I find it tedious looking up translations which are sometimes inaccurate of the German notations in his music since I can't read German. Thanks to pianosociety.com I'm becoming more familiar with his music. I like all of the Novelettes, but I'm afraid the others are more difficult than this one.
