Clara Schumann: A Piano Prodigy, Virtuoso & Romantic Composer

More Than A Muse

Today we talk about Clara Schumann, a piano prodigy, virtuoso, and a romantic composer. Clara was an early piano talent with a groundbreaking legacy in the piano performance world. Despite her talent as a performer, she is best remembered for her husband Robert Schumann and his well-known compositions that she helped popularize after his death. We discuss the era she grew up in, her early talent and performances, her father's refusal of her marriage (and consequent legal case), her role as a wife and mother, her struggle as a female composer, her husband's tragic death, her professional success, and how the world views her today.Listen to Clara Schumann's music HereRead the New York Times Article about her HereCheck out our recommended book about Clara HereAnd follow us on Instagram @morethanamuse.podcastdisclaimer: We are an Amazon affiliate and may make some profit from some of these product links.

Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast

First up is a story I can't believe Hollywood hasn't told in decades - the story of Johannes Brahms and Clara Schumann. Perhaps it’s because of its complex, ambiguous, and unsettled ending, but for whatever reason, it has been a story somewhat lost to history. So today we'll look back at the lives of Johannes and Clara, accompanied by pieces they both wrote during the time that they knew one another.
