Program Notes

As many other composers of the Romantic period, Robert Schumann (1810-1856), a great German composer, wrote many piano pieces to express a mood or a programmatic idea, called character pieces. They are often identified by their fanciful titles, such as Ballade, Impromptu, Album Leaf, etc. Composers of this period would link, or group, a series of character pieces into a single collection and give it an overall title; Traumerei (Dreaming) is an example. it is one of several pieces in Schumann's Kinderscenen, Op. 15 (Scenes from Childhood). These piano pieces were not written for children to play, but represent an idealized childhood.

Louis Sacchini's arrangement of Traumerei was written for the Dubuque (Iowa) Chamber Winds under the direction of John Oelrich and serves as a closing selection for their programs.
