My guess:

Variation on a Theme by Robert Schumann for piano, Op.20 in F sharp minor.

Navneeth says it is no prelude. And Navneeth says it is no etude.
And, sure, Navneeth is an honourable man.
So are they all, all honourable men, and thus it must fall
that the piece shall be a variation.
But, alas, a variation of what? Of this I can only venture a guess,
and I shall guess it to be Variations de concert sur la cavatine du Pirate de Bellini, Op. 8.

:D

Bad luck, old Shap! ;)

My hat goes off to you, Mr.Cat. It is indeed Opus 20. :victory:

It's actually Variations on a Theme by Mr.Schumann.

Hmmm, AllMusic calls it "Robert", not Mr.

Perhaps Clara called him Mr. :mrgreen:

I guess I'm doing Freedom 55 !

Herr.Schumann, perhaps? My emphasis was actually on the 's' in 'variations'.

Looking forward to Freedom 55. :)

Not really. I would have felt compelled to do the next one in a Shakespearian tone, and I don't think I could have pulled it off as well as I would have liked.

So Cat can have a turn at the next one. :D

Cat,

Anytime! I'm glad to see Mrs. Schumann make it to the list at last. I had considered choosing her a while back, but went with Mahler, instead.

Btw, I've been wanting to ask you - what does V/R stand for?
