Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann – a true story of passion, music and tragedy

Performance at The Quarry Theatre, Bedford

Inspired by award-winning pianist Lucy Parham’s lifelong passion for the music of Robert Shumann and Johannes Brahms, Beloved Clara brings to life the intense relationship between Schumman, his wife Clara and the dynamic young Brahms. Drawn from their intimate letters and diaries, and illustrated by their own wonderful piano music, this fascinating and moving story chronicles Clara and Robert’s sometimes troubled marriage, from the deepening relationship between Clara and Brahms to Schumann’s tragic decline into mental illness.
