Humoresque in B Flat Major, Op. 20

Humoresque in B-flat Major, Op. 20


Humoresque in B-flat Major, Op. 20 - Revised Edition (Softcover)

(ed. Ernst Herttrich; fing. Hans-Martin Theopold)

“Do you not know Jean Paul, our great writer? I have learnt more couterpoint from him that from my music teacher.” His Vorschule der Ästhetik with its extensive treatment of humour probably occasioned to Schumann to think of giving a piano work the title Humoreske – thus giving birth to a new musical genre. The “romantic humour” is not, however, aimed at humour in a modern sense of the word, but rather at a portrayal of the fragility and contradictory nature of the human condition. As if in a kaleidoscope, Schumann juxtaposes the most diverse elements of form and moods. Ernst Herttrich's revision reflects the latest scholarly findings for this unusual work.
