Evening Concert - Snapshots of Love and Life

Clara Schumann Piano Trio
Robert Schumann Frauenliebe und leben
Anne Cawrse, libretto by Anna Goldsworthy Snapshots of Love and Life
Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio predates her husband’s first work in that genre by a year. She wrote it after suffering a miscarriage and during a period when her husband was seriously ill. Robert Schumann’s song cycle Frauenliebe und leben presents a perspective on life from a female whose life revolved purely around her home and husband. Also featuring the premiere of a new work by Anne Cawrse and Anna Goldsworthy.
