Clavier Companion - January/February 2012 - 31

Romantic reverence for fairy tales was reflected in piano literature. Pieces based on these stories had their effective beginning in the nineteenth century. The use of traditional tales as subject matter for piano music has persisted until the present day. Robert Schumann’s (1810-1856) “Scheherazade,” from Album for the Young (Op. 68, No. 32), draws its inspiration from the “One Thousand and One Nights” of Oriental tradition. This piece, in A minor, is to be played “rather slowly, gently.” It consists of two sections of uneven lengths, both with repeats. Arpeggios and inner voicing in the right hand provide technical and musical challenges for young students (see Excerpt 1).

Excerpt 1: Schumann: “Scheherazade,” from Album for the Young, Op. 68, No. 32, mm. 1-4.
