Schumann - Fantasy Pieces, Opus 73 for Trombone and Piano
There are three movements in Fantasy Pieces that make up Robert Schumann’s Opus 73. Completed in 1849, he linked each piece harmonically. He directs the performers to follow on to the next section, indicating that these movements were intended as a whole. From a mood of delicate expression, through eloquent and lively, to fiery and urgent, this is a compelling and intriguing work. The Fantasy Pieces are full of Romanticism and thoughtfulness to make it an important and entertaining work.
This version has been skillfully arranged for Tenor Trombone and Piano by Ralph Sauer, retired Principal Trombonist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
