SCENES FROM CHILDHOOD, Op. 15 Schumann
In Robert Schumann (1810-1865) we find the greatest genius and the most fascinating personality of the Romantic School. His KINDER-SCENEN OP. 15 (SCENES FROM CHILDHOOD) belong to his early period of composition and are a reflection of his experience in life. The poetic titles of the pieces are not meant to suggest that the composer had definite objects in his mind when writing. But they help to arouse in the listener or player, the special mood or feeling of each piece and lead his imagination in a particular and definite direction.

Virginia Hall Phyllis Mansfield at the piano CARNAVAL MIGNON Op. 48 ,Schuett Edouard Schuett (1856-1933) was born in St. Petersburg but was later naturalized as an Austrian. Though a modern as to date, he was far from ultra-modern in his work. Throughout his compositions, com-prising for the most part charming piano pieces based on simple and light-hearted ideas, we can trace the Schumannesque spirit.
The CARNAVAL MIGNON iS a universal favorite, deriving its inspira-tion from the same source as Schumann's Carnaval, its counterpart, though not its model. Through it he portrays the merriment of a masquerade in musical pictures.
The brilliant PRELUDE is the overture, so to speak, to the charm-ing suite, in which he introduces with contrasting effects the various personages of the masked ball. The exquisitely graceful SERENADE OF HARLEQUIN, suggesting the fantastic trickery of the droll, is followed by a plaintively beautiful number, the LAMENT OF COLUMBINE, Harle-quin's sweetheart. PUNCHINELLO, the English Punch of Italian puppet-show origin, is depicted in a charmingly light and humorous piece. PIERROT, THE DREAMER, a very expressive songlike composition, gives us a picture of the buffoon in a pensive mood. And the whole suite, abounding in melody of the most magnetic attraction, closes with an infectious caprice, SGANARELLE.
