Davidsbündlertänze op. 6
編集者: Ernst Herttrich
指使い: Hans-Martin Theopold
The “Davidsbund” – a group of artists who had joined forces in a revolutionary struggle against the backward structures in the artistic world, amongst whose members he counted both real and imaginary people – only existed in Schumann’s imagination. He published the first edition of his “Davidstänze” under the pseudonym “Florestan and Eusebius” – the two characters that represented contrasting (impetuous and gentle) aspects of his own self. Clara Wieck, to whom he unsuccessfully proposed several times whilst writing it, is also represented; “more than anything” he dedicated these dances to her. These short, extremely diverse tone pictures afford us an intimate insight into Schumann’s emotional state at the time.
Both of these are a pleasure to play from, with discreet fingering from Theopold.

Henle continue their superlative reappraisal of Schumann’s piano œuvre with that evergreen prenuptial sparkler, Davidsbündlertänze. … the authority and explanatory notes for editorial decisions remain as one would expect from a publishing house that currently leads the field in editions of this repertoire.

Les Davidsbündlertänze op. 6 datent de la fin de l’été 1837. … Ernst Herttrich a choisi de reprendre la version de 1850 et de noter dans les commentaires (allemand-français) ce qui la distingue de la première version de 1837.
