Features
Pictures from the East; Op. 66 by : Christiane Strucken-Paland : Robert Schumann


In 1849 Schumann published six Impromptus for piano four-hands with the title “Bilder aus Osten”. As can be seen from the preface of the first edition; Schumann was inspired by the “Maqama” - a genre of Arab rhymed prose - by the medieval poet Hariri in the translation by Friedrich Rückert. Schumann could not banish the protagonist in the Maqama; Abu Said; whom he likened to the German character Till Eulenspiegel from his thoughts whilst he was writing the works. This explains the “foreign character” of the pieces. Even 150 years later; the “Pictures from the East” with their nuanced use of a wide range of sound possibilities in the interplay of the four hands; have lost none of their charm.
