Toccata in C Major Op. 7 by : Robert Schumann : Wolfgang Boetticher
Schumann began work on the Toccata op. 7 when he was only 20 years old. At the time he was studying law; following his family's wishes. He did not; however; intend to have his first manuscript; entitled “Exercise;” published; it was only when he was finding his way as a musician that he turned to the sketches again. Similar to his approach with the Paganini studies; he endeavoured to combine virtuosity with musical content. The print version of this “Toccata” differed greatly from the first ideas for the “Exercise.” The autograph of the final version is missing; although the “Exercise” has survived in the form of Schumann's manuscript. It is reproduced in the appendix of our revised edition.
