“How indescribably beautiful are your “Kinderscenen”! My wonderment increases each time I play them.” Clara Wieck to Robert Schumann on 24 March 1839
This new edition follows the music text prepared by Clara Schumann among others for the old Complete Edition of Schumann’s works published by Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig. That publication was based chiefly on the first editions which had been supervised by Schumann himself. However, for the edition of the Kinderszenen Clara Schumann drew on a later, second edition. Some unjustifiable alterations of the music text were eliminated after comparison with the first edition.
