composed by Schumann
The Six Etudes were originally for the Pedal Piano, which is rarely met at the present day. So these pieces are not so famous, however, they are very beautiful.

This Opus 56-1 sounds like interactions between two streams of water.
No.2 Con Intima Espressione
This Opus 56-2 is full of poetic sentiment and romance.
This Opus 56-3 creates the sensation of happiness.
No.4 Con intimo sentimento/ Un poco piu mosso
This Opus 56-4 is full of esperance and happiness with a dramatic part of counterpoint.
No.5 Non Troppo Presto
In this Opus 56-5, lilting notes are used, however the music is not fully lilting.
This Opus 56-6 is also beautiful with a feeling like participating phantasmagoria.
