You will find enclosed my interpretation of the first scene from childhood by Schumann.

Hope you will like it Smiley

Robert Schumann Kinderszenen (Scenes of Childhood), Op. 15 No. 1. Von fremden Landern und Menschen (Of Foreign Lands and People)

In this interpretation I'm trying to portray the feeling of remembering happy memories but with the overlay of bittersweet from knowing that they are in the past and you cannot return.

I know this piece has many different interpretations on the tempo and phrasing so I hope that this is enjoyable regardless of your preference. Smiley

Apologies for the hiss, it seems the mp3 encoding amplifies that part of the recording.

xx fingering notation in Schumans of Foreign Lands and People

I'm just learning this piece and I notice that fingering in one of the measures is given as  3-4  . I'm assuming that this indicates alternate fingerning i.e. you can finger with 3 or 4 whichever suits ?
thanks GT

Yes, this site has the piece, but I'm wondering, I can stretch up to 9th, is it good enough to be able to play that music?

For the triplets, why is the 1st and 2nd note in the base, 3rd note always in the treble? Do I play the 3rd note in a triplet with my left or right hand?

I'd appreciate if u could give me some advice.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
