An arrangement of a popular Schumann Piano work for Brass Quintet, great piece for pro Brass Ensembles.

Kinderszenen (German pronunciation: [ˈkɪndɐˌst͡seːnən], "Scenes from Childhood"), Op. 15, by Robert Schumann, is a set of thirteen pieces of music for piano written in 1838.

Schumann wrote 30 movements for this work but chose 13 for the final version. The unused movements were later published in Bunte Blätter, Op. 99, and Albumblätter, Op. 124. Schumann initially intended to publish Kinderszenen together with Novelletten (Opus 21); the shared literary theme is suggested by the original title Kindergeschichten (Children's Tales). He told his wife Clara that the "thirty small, droll things", most of them less than a page in length, were inspired by her comment that he sometimes seemed "like a child". He described them in 1840 as "more cheerful, gentler, more melodic" than his earlier works.

Movement No. 7 of the work, Träumerei, is one of Schumann's best known pieces; it is the opening and closing musical theme of the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, and Träumerei is the title of a 1944 German biographical film on Schumann. In Russia, a hummed choral a cappella version became known as mourning music, being played annually during the Minute of Silence on Victory Day.

Originally called Leichte Stücke ("Easy Pieces"), the section titles were only added after the completion of the composition, and Schumann described them as "nothing more than delicate hints for execution and interpretation". Timothy D. Taylor, however, has discussed the choice of titles for this work in the context of the changing situation of music culturally and economically, stating that the final movement, entitled Der Dichter spricht (The Poet Speaks), marked a realisation among composers that, due to the decline of patronage structures in the 19th century, their musical works must take on new meanings.

There is no known complete manuscript of Kinderszenen.

13 movement:

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 Glockes genug (Happiness), D major Wichtige Begebenheit (An Important Event), A major Traumerei (Dreaming), 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

Scenes From Childhood (Kinderscenen), Opus 15 is a set of 13 pieces of music that Schumann wrote for Piano in 1838. They are his reminiscences of childhood and have been beautifully scored for Brass Quintet by Keith Terrett. The most well known of the movements is Tråumerei (Dreaming) and has been used in movies to portray love scenes because of its tenderness and beauty. The music is for advanced performers and the collection contains close to 20 minutes of some very sublime & poetic music. Any of these pieces can be inserted into a recital program.
