  • Schumann, Robert (Herrtrich/Theopold)

    Davidsbundlertanze, op 6 (Herrtrich/Theopold)

    G. Henle URTEXT edition. Newly revised 2007 edition. Edited by Ernst Hettrich. Fingering by Hans-Martin Theopold. The "Davidsbund" - a group of artists who had joined forces in a revolutionary struggle against the backward structures in the artistic world, amongst whose members he counted both real and imaginary people - only existed in Schumann's imagination. He published the first edition of his "Davidstanze" under the pseudonym "Florestan and Eusebius" - the two characters that represented contrasting (impetuous and gentle) aspects of his own self. Clara Wieck, to whom he unsuccessfully proposed several times whilst writing it, is also represented; "more than anything" he dedicated these dances to her. These short, extremely diverse tone pictures afford us an intimate insight into Schumann's emotional state at the time.
