Mozart's Attic: Clara Wieck Schumann
Clara Wieck Schumann was a piano virtuosa and to some extent a composer, but her importance to music far exceeds either of those endeavors. She was the central figure in a professional network that included her husband Robert, Josef Joachim, Johannes Brahms, Antonin Dvorak, and others — all while fulfiling the role of a woman in 19th-century German society.
Clara Shumann and her circle of influence is our topic for this Sunday’s visit to the Attic.
