The remarkable story of the composerpianist Clara Schumann comes to life in this small masterpiece by Riana Scheepers in which pianist Nina Schumann and actress Carla Smith both play the role of the heroic main character. Nina Schumann, who like Madame Clara is also a pedagogue and concert pianist, narrates Clara’s story with piano music by the composers Robert Schumann and Clara Schumann, and Johannes Brahms, Clara’s beloved friend. Her life of passion, tragedy and above all endurance is presented in Afrikaans, accompanied by the universal language of music.
