Newly re-discovered in the run-up to the Schumann Year about three years ago, a previously unknown manuscript of an album leaf for piano by Robert Schumann was found in the Leopold Sophien Library of Überlingen. The little piano piece, entitled 'Ahnung', had been given and dedicated by Klara Schumann to a friend of hers, the lithographer and writer Julius Allgeyer. In the Wiener Urtext Edition series, this little work is published for the first time in the run-up to the Schumann Year 2010.
The Wiener Urtext Edition is a critical musicological edition for practical use and is distinguished from many other Urtext editions by comprehensive textual information in German and English and partly also in French.
