T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Origins: Bear Dance (48) RE: Origins: Bear Dance 11 Jun 08


I wrote above that there is a Bear Dance in Schumann's Album for the Young. It turns out it's a bit more complicated. The Album as first published did not have a piece by that name. In one of Schumann's manuscript worksheets for the Album there is a piece by that name, however, and it is included in an appendix in at least one modern edition: the Viener Urtext Edition of 1979.

This isn't the only Bärentanz Schumann wrote. Part of another one can be heard here.
