A re-recording of Schumann's charming little dedication to Chopin. I'm surprised that the score indicates 'Agitato' on such a sweet and dainty melody. Perhaps Schumann wanted to convey an agitated burst of passion and infatuation? After the turbulence of the first section I feel compelled to play the repeat fully in Una Corda and at a more relaxed tempo to bring out the hushed sweet tones of melody.
