Schumann's animated chorus of piano, viola and clarinet spin a classic fable on this four-part composition with a happily ever after ending. It starts briskly, mischievously searching and working the crowd with cunning charm. The mid-section is more dramatic and whimsical, with the viola and clarinet awkwardly perfecting a dance conducted by the omniscient piano, before whirling into an urgent final movement with the keenest precision, regality and class.
