Mozart's Attic Sunday April 3rd at 6:00 p.m.
As a pianist and as a composer, Clara Wieck Schumann hobnobbed with some heady company: her husband Robert, of course, johannes Brahms, Joseph Joachim, Antonin Dvorak, and others. She was the peer of many, and the better of more than a few.
As a 19th-century wife, however, music was not her main role, and we have very little of her work as a composer. We do have some, though, and this Sunday we’ll hear her rarely performed Piano Concerto in A minor, her only orchestral work.
