"Estudio" Segovia/Schumann

On behalf of a long-time customer and friend, I offer for sale this unique manuscript by Andrés Segovia. Being not myself the seller, I here act as an intermediary only, but do vouch for the authenticity of this special find as well as for the seller's trustworthiness.

SEGOVIA (Andrés), SCHUMANN (Robert). Estudio, transcrita en Cordoba el 26-X-913.

Cordoba 1913.

Manuscript transcription of an Etude by Robert Schumann (83 measures in E, with fingerings for both hands), written in ink on a strong music paper, watermarked "A. S. S."; 6 pages, 31 x 21,5 cm.

On a separate double-sided sheet: "Reverie Schumann" (with fingerings), unsigned, but obviously from the same hand and period.

The German guitar player and researcher Andreas Stevens was so kind as to provide additional background informations on this manuscript : the original title of the "Etude" is "Kleine Studie" (no.14 from Album für die Jugend, op.68), it was published by Romero & Fernandez under the title "Pequeno Estudio".

"Reverie" (originally "Träumerei" from Kinderszenen op.15) on the other hand appears to have never been published, but it is featured on Segovia's final recording.
