– Andrew Beale, Managing Director
THE SCHUMANNS – Turbulence and Friendships Music performed by the English Piano Trio. The script is narrated by Christopher Ravenscroft and Ann Penfold
Robert Schumann’s emotionally turbulent life is unusually welldocumented, not least because both he and his wife Clara kept diaries. The revealing and entertaining entries provide an insight into his music, his psychology, his friendships with Mendelssohn, Wagner, Liszt and Brahms, and of course his marriage to Clara, mother of their many children, as well as one of the greatest pianists of her age. The music is from both Robert and Clara Schumann, Brahms and Mendelssohn.
