This new edition of the Schumann Fantasy Pieces or Fantasiestucke was originally composed for clarinet and piano in 1849. The solo clarinet part has been adapted for bassoon by John Anderson for the Jeanne Master Class Series.

In addition to the bassoon and piano parts, this edition also includes historical information and extensive performance suggestions. A copy of the original manuscript and the 1885 Breitkopf edition, edited by Clara Schumann, have been the main references. That edition includes both clarinet and cello parts. Our adaption of bassoon as the solo instrument has used the clarinet articulations rather than those found in the cello edition since the slight differences in the cello edition are mostly due to bowing and unrelated to wind instruments. However, ossia measures are printed in the bassoon part to show the cello measures where more significant differences exist. Which options to use remains with the bassoon soloist. There are few serious technical problems for the bassoonist. The challenge is to make the music into a "dialogue" between the bassoon and piano. These pieces are not a "solo with accompaniment," but pure chamber music between two equal partners.

Total duration approximately 10.5 minutes.
