Clara Schumann was considered one of the finest pianists of her day, performing all over Europe to great acclaim. She was also a composer, although her compositions were virtually unknown until the latter part of the 20th century. We’ll explore her deeply expressive music, as well as works by two of her primary influences, Bach and Brahms. This includes J.S. Bach Selections from Goldberg Variations, Clara Schumann Piano Trio in G minor and Brahms Sextet in G major, Op. 36.
