Schumann’s C major Fantasy Op. 17 for piano is the point of departure of Hans Zender's compositional journey of discovery in his Schumann-Fantasie. "There is an essay by Schumann in which he praises Schubert for having created his piano music from the spirit of that instrument. The same can be said of Schumann’s Fantasy; it is precisely for this reason that an orchestration signifies a reinterpretation of the original.” (Hans Zender)
