Clara Schumann 1819-1896

Jan - Mar 2019

It's 200 years since the birth of Clara Schumann, and the Jerwood library is marking the occasion with a small exhibition dedicated to her life and work displaying a range of materials available from our collection, including books, scores, and recordings. Known as Europe’s ‘Queen of the Piano’, Clara had a brilliant career for over 60 years as one of the most prominent virtuoso pianists of the nineteenth century. She also composed an accomplished series of around 50 pieces, greatly admired by her contemporaries.
