Combining these two Schumann bestsellers seemed very natural: both of the titles not only reflect their inner association but the technical demands on the pianist are for once not so great. Both works are collections of more-or-less short, succinct pieces that ever since their publication (in 1839 and 1848) were to "profoundly influence middle-class musical culture in the second half of the 19th century. To this day, they have lost hardly any of their appeal" (Ernst Herttrich from the preface).
