Today I’m playing the most well-known of Schumann’s Kinderszenen, Träumerei. Kinderszenen is a set of thirteen pieces which evoked memories of childhood for the composer, and No.7, Träumerei, is probably Schumann’s best-known work for piano. It was used as the opening and closing title music for the 1947 film Song of Love in which Katharine Hepburn played Clara Schumann.
