Program notes

Clara Schumann is a classical musical legend, as much for her prodigious talent and contributions to the field as for her compelling life story—from her strict upbringing and her exceptional pianistic gifts, noticed at an early age, to her love affair and marriage with Robert Schumann, a union that produced eight children. But who was Clara, really? This documentary examines the enigmatic figure through various different lenses: her letters and notebooks, the legacy of her compositions, and expert testimony by devotees, biographers, and interpreters of her music.
