Commemorating the bicentenary of Clara Schumann, Guildhall School alumna Lucy Parham presents an original Composer Portrait: Beloved Clara.

This special concert will tell the compelling and tragic story of the passionate yet volatile relationship between Robert Schumann, his pianist wife Clara Wieck and Johannes Brahms.

Award-winning pianist Lucy – internationally known for her Composer Portrait concert series – will perform music by all three composers, interspersed with extracts from their letters and diaries read by acclaimed actors and fellow Guildhall alumni Lesley Sharp and Simon Russell Beale.

Part of the Alumni Recital Series, in support of Guildhall School’s Scholarship Fund.

"A lovely entertainment – flawlessly performed" The Independent
