Clara Schumann was probably the most famous female pianist and composer of the 19th century - and so much more than “just” the wife of Robert Schumann. In this concert, the audience learns informative and amusing details of Clara and the most important people in her life: from her father's rock-hard drill, from the hidden love messages that she and Robert sent each other through compositions, from her intimate friendship with Johannes Brahms and her legendary concert tours across Europe.  A journey through time into a classic 19th century soiree awaits you.
