Revised version

Copyright
Misc. Notes The title page reference to Robert Schumann is due to the fact that Schumann's arrangement used Dotzauer's edition as its source. Stade's revised arrangement incorporated features from the Dotzauer and Grützmacher editions, while the original version is mainly based on Norblin's edition from ca.1824.
