Lockdown Music 17: Pianist, prodigy, wife, mother, composer – meet Clara Schumann

Clara Schumann was not only a brilliant and successful internationally famous pianist but found time to write music as well as support her husband, composer Robert Schumann, and raise a massive family.

Her Three Romances for piano are great: intimate, emotional, restful.
