Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

I'm back from my holiday, but new information I've found is forcing me to rewrite the essays I prepared while away. If tomorrow is a pleasant day, I'll be sure to hammer them out in front of my local café. In the meantime, to commemorate Robert Schumann's bicentennial, albeit belated, please enjoy one of the few pieces in this world that I wish I could hear again for the first time, the Träumerei, courtesy of the great Vladimir Horowitz.

My, does this ever bring back the memories.
