Does anyone know of any scholarship on the subject of the Schumann
Fantasty Pieces. I'm referring specifically to the second one. The clarinet
plays the theme in quarter & eighth notes, but when the piano plays this
material, it is in a triplet rhythm. This has always seemed odd to me. It
doesn't seem quite right to have the tune sound different from one voice to
the other. Is there some performance practice in Schumann's piano music that
would allow for the rhythm to be changed to conform to the clarinet? (this is
probably one for a piano list) Should the rhythm be played literally? I
would appreciate your input.
