10 Books about Clara Wieck Schumann

“Composing gives me great pleasure... there is nothing that surpasses the joy of creation, if only because through it one wins hours of self-forgetfulness, when one lives in a world of sound."

Clara Schumann's cadenzas for Mozart's Concerto in d minor K. 466


    Clara Schumann: Volume 1

    Clara Schumann (1819-1896), child prodigy, celebrated concert pianist, composer, and friend of Brahms, was also the wife of composer Robert Schumann. Her father Friedrich Wieck's implacable opposition to their marriage, the sublime music she inspired in Schumann and his tragic death at a cruelly young age underlie one of music's great romances. The German literary historian Berthold Litzmann (1857-1926) first published his biography in three volumes between 1902 and 1908, based on the diaries and letters of Robert and Clara Schumann. Appearing in 1913, this two-volume English translation by Grace Hadow (1875-1940) is an abridged version of the German fourth edition, offering a lucid portrait of a central figure in nineteenth-century European musical life. A preface is provided by the translator's elder brother, William Henry Hadow (1859-1937), the music historian. Volume 1 covers the years 1819 to 1850.

    Clara schumann, 1819-1896

    Clara Wieck-Schumann est certes l'épouse de Robert Schumann, mais elle est également une figure majeure de la société de son temps. Pianiste, elle parcourt, sa vie durant, les scènes de l'Europe entière et devient incontestablement l'une des plus brillantes virtuoses du romantisme, un "second Liszt". Egalement compositrice et mère d'une famille nombreuse, Clara Wieck-Schumann brave les idées reçues, voire certains interdits de son époque, pour concilier des vies qui paraissent pour le moins incompatibles.

    Clara

    Janice Galloway's new novel is based on the life of Clara Schumann: celebrated nineteenth-century concert pianist and composer, editor and teacher, friend of Brahms - who was also the wife of Robert Schumann, the mother of his eight children, and the woman who cared for him through a series of crippling mental illnesses. Clara is a lyrical and vibrant account of two remarkable and highly dramatic musical careers, but primarily it is a novel about timeless, common things: about the inescapable influences of childhood, about creativity and marital life, about communication and silence, about how art is made and how art, in turn, may erode or save the life that nourishes it.
