Cello Journey #24, Schumann Fantasiestucke No.1


Cello Journey CD: http://cdbaby.com/cd/cellojourney Cello Journey DVD: http://cdbaby.com/cd/cellojourney2 Visit the website: http://cellojourney.com/ In this episode we play the first of three Fantasiestucke (Fantasy Pieces) by Robert Schumann. This piece was originally written for clarinet and piano but I think it sounds good on the cello. Schumann often wrote sets of miniatures that each have their own mood. In this one there is some tension between triplets (three notes per beat) in the piano and duplets (two notes per beat) in melodies in both the cello and piano. This adds unrest to this emotional and romantic piece. We hope you enjoy it.
