Clara Wieck Schumann was one of the most gifted pianists of her generation, as well as a composer in her own right.  She was also beloved by two of the most influential men of music: her husband Robert and her life-long friend Johannes Brahms. This program samples music for viola and piano by the two gentlemen and also music of Clara’s. Program host Betsy Schwarm will also share excerpts from their correspondence for perspective on their views of each other and each other’s music.  

Arts in the Afternoon is a series of weekday afternoon concerts and performances designed to transport you out of the ordinary. Enjoy a variety of styles by professional performers in this intimate series. Refreshments are provided as a part of your ticket, so please stay after the performance to talk with performers, reflect on what you saw, and enjoy social time.
