Schumann – Fantasiestucke: Des Abends, Aufschwung – Argerich, Piano

Fantasiestücke, Op. 12, is a set of eight pieces for piano, written in 1837 by Robert Schumann. The title was inspired by the 1814–15 collection of novellas, essays, treatises, letters, and writings about music, Fantasiestücke in Callots Manier (which also included the complete Kreisleriana, another source of inspiration for Schumann) by one of his favourite authors, E. T. A. Hoffmann. Schumann dedicated the pieces to Fräulein Anna Robena Laidlaw, an accomplished and attractive 18-year-old Scottish pianist with whom Schumann had become good friends.
