I hope this will be of interest to piano teachers and students. The new Schirmer Student Piano Library has made my edition of Schumann´s Scenes from Childhood available at the Hal Leonard website www.halleonard.com The new edition is true to the original Schumann text, and provides a foreword, historical overview, performance comments and a cd which I recorded for the edition. I hope it will be enjoyed for many generations to come!
