Schumann Fantasiestücke Op. 12
Schubert Wanderer Fantasy
Beethoven Fantasia for piano, Op. 77
Beethoven Eroica Variations, Op. 35 (Prometheus Variations)
Both Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy and Beethoven's Eroica Variations are among the most challenging of all solo piano works. Beethoven used the theme again for the last movement of his famous Eroica Symphony and these variations are a simply stunning musical feast. Schumann worshipped both Schubert and Beethoven and was a great composer of romantic piano music in his own right.
