Description: World Premiere Recording of Schumann's sketches for an orchestral version of his Op. 1 Abegg Variations of 1830/31 which also include the completion of an incomplete variation not in the solo piano version. Also quite rare is Dutch pianist Jozef de Beenhouwer's 1986 reconstruction and completion of the only surviving sketches for Schumann's E major concerto of 1839 (edited also by Draheim and published in 1988); this is a six-and-a-half minute corker of Romantic mood and excitement!
