Liedchen von Marie und Papa, WoO26 No 3

First line:
Gern mach ich Dir heute
12 September 1852; for Clara's 33rd birthday on 13 September 1852
author of text

In his household book for 12 September, Schumann notes: ‘The little birthday poem of the children and my music.’ This was performed the following day in honour of Clara Schumann’s thirty-third birthday. According to the song’s title, the poem was by Marie, the Schumanns’ eldest child. The two-part writing has the light touch of a master, the authentic Schumann – particularly in the second half of the tiny piece. This is a charming glimpse, however brief, into the domestic life of the Schumann family where there was always a reason to make music.

C’est le petit lied le plus simple et le plus sincère, écrit pour donner la sérénade à Clara au matin de son trente-troisième anniversaire.
