There really hasn't been much going on in the world of classical music in the quaint cities surrounding St. Paul and Minneapolis, so here is a beautiful piece by Robert Schumann called Traumerie. By clicking on 'Traumerie' you can listen to a good version of it on YouTube. However, if that link doesn't work, here is the original HTML code: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUHutmfaCmk. In this piece you will find a very good depiction of how piano pieces were written and structured during the Romantic period of music. This piece is very beautiful and I hope you enjoy it.
