With humor, slow and tender, extremely brisk: the very expression marks of the Op. 12 Fantasy Pieces illuminate their musical universe, a kaleidoscope of ideas and moods. Our revised new edition presents not only the eight original pieces, but also an appendix containing a ninth piece that Schumann excised during the final stages of publication. Several of the composer's friends, including the work's dedicatee Robena Ann Laidlaw, played some of Op. 12 in public before it appeared in print. Later the work achieved rapid and widespread popularity. Perhaps the greatest compliment came from Franz Liszt, who excitedly wrote to the composer, Your 'Fantasy Pieces' have captured my interest in an extraordinary way. I play them truly with delight, and Lord knows there are not many things of which I can say the same.

Songs Include:

  • Schumann: Fantasy Pieces op. 12 (with appendix: WoO 28)

"I stumbled onto your web site by looking for a specific type of classical guitar string, which you carried. I ordered them yesterday and they arrived just an hour ago, about 24 hours after I placed the order! What fantastic service -- and your prices are very good. I play several string instruments and I will buy all my strings (and other supplies) from you in the future. Thanks for the great work."

"I ordered drums for my 13-year-old grandaughter for Christmas. They were ordered on December 21st. I thought there was no way she'd get them in time for Christmas and probably not before New Year's Day. To my surprise, she called us on December 23rd and said she'd already received them. Now that is amazing service. The drums are beautiful and she's estatic! We will surely be ordering more musical equipment in this coming year. Another thing. I'd gone to the local music store which carries lots of equipment and they were out of the drums I wanted to purchase. I got online and found activemusician.com and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."
