Written to celebrate 200 years since Clara Wieck Schumann’s birth in 1819, ‘I, Clara’ tells her extraordinary life story in her own words. It is the sixth Composer Portrait created by renowned pianist and broadcaster, Lucy Parham, and received its London premiere in October 2019.

The narrative of ‘I, Clara’, drawn from letters and diaries, is interspersed with live performances of her works, and of music by Robert Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Mendelssohn, and Chopin.

The narrator is acclaimed actress, Joanna David (Inspector Morse, Downton Abbey).
