SCHUMANN, R.: Arrangements for Piano Duet, Vol. 1 (Eckerle Piano Duo) - String Quartet No. 3 / Piano Quintet

Piano arrangements were the main way for people to become acquainted with concert repertoire in Schumann’s day, and publishers ensured that the huge demand for such versions was met. Otto Dresel’s arrangement of the String Quartet, Op 41, No 3 was approved by the composer. Clara Schumann was dedicatee and soloist for the Piano Quintet, Op 44, and she was able to draw on her intimate knowledge of her husband’s work to make her own highly effective arrangement. This is the first of seven volumes including Schumann’s entire orchestral works arranged for piano duet.
