Well written arrangement!

It is always going to be tricky working on a very well known piece, getting all the nuances of the original masterwork. Keith has done an excellent job in this ’Scenes from Childhood’. I realise the the price tag may seem a little high; but as this includes the parts as well and the work of two well known composers, I think it is a small price to pay!

Kevin Riley

This setting of ’Scenes from Childhood’ is for a classical wind quintet, and is an arrangement transcribed from the original solo piano piece from Schumann’s Kinderszenen Opus 15.

I hope my transcription will offer wind quintets a new work to add to their library, especially school and college groups looking to expand their repertoires.

Below are listed the complete movements of Schumann’s work, with the original keys,I have changed the keys; to make the arrangement more playable and practical for Wind Quintets.

Von fremden Landern und Menschen (Of Foreign Lands and Peoples), G major Kuriose Geschichte (A Curious Story), D major Hasche-Mann (Blind Man’s Bluff), B minor Bittendes Kind (Pleading Child), D major Gluckes genug (Happiness), D major Wichtige Begebenheit (An Important Event), A major Traumerei (Reverie), F major Am Kamin (At the Fireside), F major Ritter vom Steckenpferd (Knight of the Hobbyhorse), C major Fast zu ernst (Almost Too Serious), G-sharp minor Furchtenmachen (Frightening), E minor Kind im Einschlummern (Child Falling Asleep), E minor Der Dichter spricht (The Poet Speaks), G major

Traumerei is one of Schumann’s best known pieces. It was the title of a 1944 German biopic on Robert Schumann. Traumerei is the love song for Robert and Clara Schumann in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katherine Hepburn as Clara Wiek Schumann.
