Schumann began work on the Toccata op. 7 when he was only 20 years old. At the time he was studying law, following his family’s wishes. He did not, however, intend to have his first manuscript, entitled “Exercice”, published; it was only when he was finding his way as a musician that he turned to the sketches again. Similar to his approach with the Paganini studies, he endeavoured to combine virtuosity with musical content. The print version of this “Toccata” differed greatly from the first ideas for the “Exercice”. The autograph of the final version is missing, although the “Exercice” has survived in the form of Schumann’s manuscript. It is reproduced in the appendix of our revised edition.

Schumann schreef deze Toccata Op.7 op 20-jarige leeftijd. Hij studeerde toen rechten, conform de wensen van de familie. Voor zover bekend, was het niet de bedoeling om dit manuscript (toen getiteld: Exercice) te publiceren. Pas wanneer hij zijn roeping vond in de muziekwereld, nam hij het manuscript terug ter hand.
