Schumann Op. 15, no. 5 Perfect Happiness (Glückes genug)
The companion piece of Pleading Child, Perfect Happiness provides sparkling contrast when played back to back. The octaves in the left hand give the piece a rich, full sound, but be careful not to let it become too bottom heavy; the melody must always sing out. This includes the measures where the melody is taken by the left hand (m. 2, 5, 10, 13, 18). If the tenth in measure 19 doesn’t fit your hand, play it like the grace notes in m. 5 and 15.
