Robert Schumann's characterisation of the viola da gamba in 1840 as ‘this romantic instrument’ expresses admiration for the instrument’s special suitability for the realisation of romantic sound ideals. In the first printing, the editor Thomas Fritzsch presents four original adaptations of romantic pieces by Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Schumann and Liszt, which were performed by gambists during the lifetime of these composers. The original fingerings for Schumann’s Abendlied guide gambists to the sound world of the nineteenth century.
