Schumann's Forest Scenes op. 82 date from the years 1848/49. This was the composer's most creative period but one which was marked by revolutionary unrest and political uncertainty. As well as choral compositions and major dramatic works including the opera "Genoveva" and "Manfred" Schumann created the intimate piano cycle Forest Scenes, inspired by illustrations of the same theme. The last to be written was the wistful-filigree "Vogel als Prophet" (no. 7), probably the best-known piece in the cycle. The pieces of moderate technical difficulty are enchanting in their song-like poetry, and are a jewel of domestic music-making from the Romantic period.
