$37.50 USD



Robert Schumann, Four Sketches, Op. 58 were composed for the "pedal-board" piano in 1845. He and his wife Clara rented a pedal-board piano, which is an upright grand piano with an organ-like pedal-board played by the performer's feet primarily for the bass line. Thus, organ works could be practiced on this now mostly extinct instrument. He and Clara spent many hours practicing the revered organ works of Bach on this instrument.

Robert Coulter has marvelously arranged these little-known works for Brass Quintet, suitable for advanced performers. Instrumentation is for 2 Trumpets in C, Horn, Trombone and Tuba. The Four Sketches are about 14 minutes in length.
