THE reason why Schumann's Piano Concerto is such a favourite is plain—it lias something to say that moves our emotions, now tenderly, now forcefully, and it says it in clear, recognizable language, without gush or pretentiousness. The Concerto is in three Movements, the last two of which have no interval between them. It is interesting to note that the work did not at first appear in its full form. The First Movement was written in 1841, and was entitled Fantasia. Four years later. Schumann added two more Movements,, and called the whole a Concerto.
The First Movement, quick and emotional. presents its leading themes from many points of view. The Second Movement is a gentle, graceful Intermezzo that plunges into a dashing, forceful Finale.
