Towards the middle of his life, Schumann experienced a prolonged period when he became more interested in more substantial instrumental formations. He also wrote separate pieces for solo piano, but did not publish them first. It was only after the great success of the "Album pour la jeunesse" that he took over some of them and also brought them together in an album. Initially, the collection was to receive the title of "Spreu" (tares), but the publisher was not convinced. Finally a part of the 34 pieces in total was published under the title of "Bunte Blätter" and quickly became a great success. As part of our reviews of Schumann's work, we have reviewed and corrected this edition in accordance with the current state of research.
