Schumann wrote his "Romances" op. 94 in 1849, a very fruitful year for him. He allegedly presented them as his "one hundredth opusculum" to his wife Clara at Christmas. The autograph score is considered lost today. This new edition was prepared from the first edition of 1851 as well as from the autograph sketches in the Gerhard Stempnik Collection. This complete new edition also includes the original clarinet part as a supplement for the very first time, following the original intent of the first edition.
