About this concert
When people think of Schumann, their minds almost always go to the composer Robert, but did you know that his wife, the pianist and composer Clara Schumann, was one of the most famous and respected virtuosos of her time? Join Emilia, Alastair and Adam as they delve into works from both Mr. and Mrs. Schumann, highlighting their distinctive sensibilities and shared passion for their art. These personal, poetic works for piano and voice paint a detailed portrait of two brilliant artists who continue to capture our imaginations on many levels. Hear the Schumanns’ revelatory music, and a story or two about how the dynamic duo took the music world by storm.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
