Robert Schumann’s Kinderszenen were written and published in 1838. In this work, Schumann provides us with his long-forgotten experiences of childhood. Schumann had originally written 30 movements for this work, but chose 13 for the final version.

Träumerei was the title of a 1944 German biographical film on Robert Schumann. The musical work is also the love song for Robert and Clara Schumann in the 1947 Hollywood film Song of Love, starring Katharine Hepburn as Clara Schumann Wieck.

    Does anyone know where i can get beginners score sheet for this i adore it but am only just learning to play

  3. Now I feel odd because im only 17 o.e but i guess even people my age like classics too xD

    • It’s ok I’m a 19 year old U.S. Marine and I listen to this music all the time, that’s what so amazing about it is I don’t care what people think when I listen to this music it’s such an unexplainable feeling it gives people I enjoy reading people just try to say how a peace makes them feel but they never can capture the beauty of classical music with words.

    • i am 21 and i adore classics

    • that’s not strange. I’m 14 and I love classical music.

  4. This is actually a very nice piece for a classic ;o and I don’t just say that about any classic piece ^^

  5. I’m could put all such touching and calming music on my computer and listen to nothing else for hours, yet still be perfectly entertained and content. anytime of the day is perfect for a classical touch. it’s nice every once in a while to feel such emotions listening to music. Almost magical.

  6. truely beautiful and peaceful

  7. Sometimes I wonder, do adults really remember what it’s like to be a child?
    Nowadays the movies “made for teenagers” are so lame, the educational promotions “for teenagers” I think otherwise. This peice has a romantic touch, like a maturing of a first love, a child coming to the pains and funs of reality.

  8. ligeramente sutil me fascina en serio

  9. tHE CHILD IN ME YEARNS FOR THAT FREEDOM
    LACK OF RESTRICTIONS AND ESCAPE FROM BOREDOM
    A CHILD WITHOUT NOTION OF DANGER
    THAT LURKS IN EVERY STRANGE ENCOUNTER
    A CHILD WITHOUT IDEA WHAT SADNESS IS ABOUT
    EVERY UNREACHABLE OBJECT IS MET WITH A POUT
    A CHILD WITH STAMINA AND FILLED WITH ZEST
    LAUGHTER BURSTING FROM THE CHEST
    A CHILD WITH INNOCENT CONFIDENCE
    CAN DO ANYTHING WITHOUT PRETENSE

    THE CHILD IN ME WANTING TO BE FREE
