Last night was a fun night alone for me after having visitors for several days. I played through some piano anthologies I recently purchased---mostly short compositions of the master composers. I came across this little Schumann piece and it SPOKE to me. Am I weird or what? I sight read it and then couldn't stop playing it over and over. All of the information on the music is in German, and I don't know what any of it says. So perhaps my interpretation is way off base. Anyway, I almost felt like ol' Bobby Schumann was revealing secrets to me through this music. Geeze! Can I get any weirder! I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have. I know I've heard the work before in the past, but have never played it. At the beginning it says, "Nicht zu schnell" which means nothing to me. I felt that I needed to play softer and softer and softer, but couldn't get soft enough without notes not sounding. Pianolady would probably play this piece beautifully.
