Following the resounding success of his “Album for the Young” op. 68; it seemed natural for Schumann to compose further works with an educational aim. This was part of a contemporary trend and his own children gave him many ideas. The Three Sonatas op. 118 are dedicated to his eldest daughters Marie; Elise and Julie; and can be understood as character studies of the three very different girls. They are comparatively demanding teaching material; although Schumann had intended this: “The young must also become accustomed to performing longer movements”. Not only advanced students of the piano will enjoy these charming “sonatas for the young”!
