Violin 2 from Träumerei for Strings & Harp

Composer
Robert Schumann
Duration
3 minutes
Genre
Classical music

An arrangement for string orchestra, with an optional harp part if desired, of Robert Schumann’s ’’Traumerei; composed on the 24th February 1838.

This beautiful miniature comes from his Opus 15 ’’Scenes from Childhood’’; and is a fine example of Schumann’s ability to compose short picture-pieces.

This little piece is in the style of a Berceuse or Wiegenlied(lullaby in English), and shows the ability of the composer to write beautifully tranquill melodies, capable of soothing the pressures of the day away, evaporating them into blissful repose.

Perfect piece as a lollipop for a concert, or encore!

The harp part may be omitted, with no discernible loss!

I have kept the original key and tessitura intact.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
