Do you not know Jean Paul, our great writer? I have learnt more couterpoint from him that from my music teacher. His Vorschule der Ästhetik with its extensive treatment of humour probably occasioned to Schumann to think of giving a piano work the title Humoreske - thus giving birth to a new musical genre. The romantic humour is not, however, aimed at humour in a modern sense of the word, but rather at a portrayal of the fragility and contradictory nature of the human condition. As if in a kaleidoscope, Schumann juxtaposes the most diverse elements of form and moods. Ernst Herttrich's revision reflects the latest scholarly findings for this unusual work.
