Schumann -- Album for the Young, Op. 68 - Alfred Masterwork CD Edition
Numerous selections from Schumanns Album for the Young have long been favorites of intermediate students, and few collections fail to include the \"Soldiers March,\" the \"Happy Farmer\" or the \"Wild Horseman.\" This historically informed edition of the entire collection clearly differentiates the markings of the first edition from Clara Schumanns later-edited version. Discussions of ornamentation and the collections origin are also included. The Alfred Masterwork Library CD Editions conveniently combine each exceptional volume with a professionally recorded CD that is sure to inspire artistic performances.
