We have already established that the second movement of Schumann’s piano sonata no. 2 has the same theme as his song “Im Herbste,” with certain happy consequences as far as bonus tracks on Mitsuko Uchida recordings are concerned.
But now it’s the first movement that’s driving me nuts. There’s a bit about six seconds in that I could swear sounds oddly familiar, but I’m not sure why. I wonder, if you listen to enough music, does everything start to sound familiar even if it shouldn’t and then you slowly go mad?
