Clara Schumann

24th March at 15:00

Clara Schumann: Prodigy, Muse, Virtuoso
with Reiko Fujisawa (piano) and Crawford Logan (narrator)

Tickets: £16 (students £8) from Hereford Courtyard Box Office on 01432 340555 and online at www.courtyard.org.uk

Concert promoted by Espressivo www.espressivo.org.uk and supported by the
Gemma Classical Music Trust  Regd Charity No 1121090 www.gemmatrust.com

Acclaimed pianist Reiko Fujisawa, with narrator Crawford Logan, presents a portrait of the woman who was a leading pianist of her day, the wife of one great composer and the intimate friend of another, mother of eight children, composer, and teacher. Her life was marked by tragedy and distinguished by a career which spanned more than sixty years. We see her now as a strikingly independent woman, a woman of her time yet one who worked tirelessly against the grain of assumption and prejudice.
