Clara Wieck/Schumann, born 200 years ago this year, was an extraordinary figure: overshadowed in the history books by her husband Robert, but in reality a musical powerhouse in her own right. An inspired composer, brilliant and famous pianist, muse to Brahms and others, and mother of eight children, she led a long, complex and fascinating life.

11am - 12.15pm

Clara Schumann:A Life in Music. Natasha Loges introduces this pioneering musician: her life, music and influences. The talk is illustrated with songs performed by baritone James Atkinson and pianist Brian Hughes, outstanding students of the Royal College of Music.

12.15pm - 1.15pm

A light lunch is available for purchase in advance (£7).

1.15pm - 2.15pm

Lunchtime concert. Sensational Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught, who gave the closing recital of last year’s Festival, and pianist James Baillieu perform selected songs by Clara Wieck-Schumann, as well as Brahms’s passionate Zigeunerlieder.

2.30pm - 3.30pm

Rediscovering Clara Schumann. Natasha Loges is joined by Joe Davies and Kitty Whately for a discussion of Clara Wieck-Schumann’s vital position in the history of female composers.

Presented in association with the Royal College of Music
