Clara Schumann was an extraordinary pianist, composer, editor and advocate for the music she loved. We celebrate her 200th anniversary with a program that focuses on her own compositions; represented are some of the most famous, like the Romances and the piano trio, as well as lesser-known gems like the piano scherzi and her affecting Lieder. While her husband Robert is referenced thematically in her haunting variation set, Clara had her own distinctive voice that rings clear in this homage to one of the 19th-century’s most significant musicians.
