A little transcription of Schumann’s delightful ’Von fremden landern und menschen’; arranged for the unusual combination of different pitched Oboes, called an Oboe Consort.

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.
This full transcription of the complete ’Scenes From Childhood’ is available for Wind Quintet and Clarinet Ensemble in my store. Cherry Classics in Canada publish the complete version for Brass Quintet.
