This beautiful Folk Song is the ninth of 43 short piano pieces in Robert Schumann's Album for the Young, op. 68.
Its original title (in German) is Volksliedchen.
Schumann's Folk Song, op. 68, no. 9 is written in the key of D minor.
It is appropriate for Grade 5 piano students.
Please take note that the appoggiaturas in measures 3, 7 and 9 should be played ON the beat.
As these appoggiaturas are all different in terms of interpretation, we have included suggestions for performing them in accordance with the performance practice of the Romantic period.
In measure 3, the appoggiatura appears as a small eighth note without a cross-stroke. It should thus be played as a sixteenth note.
In measure 7, the appoggiatura appears as a small quarter note. It should thus be played more slowly, as an eighth note.
