Papillons is a set of 12 piano pieces, inspired by Jean Paul Richter's romance Die Flegeljahre. In its final chapter it describes a masked ball. Schumann wrote that Papillons had "tried to turn this masked ball into music" The Finale employs a 17th-century tune. known as the "Grandfather's dance", which, accordjng to old traditions, invariably terminates the ball. In addition, the score indicates that the bell in the clock tower is heard to strike six, then, the noise of the carnival ball gradually dies away. Papillons, composed in 1829-1831, is dedicated to Schumann's three sisters-in-law, Therese, Rosalie, and Emilie.
