On 17th October at The Quarry Theatre, internationally renowned pianist Lucy Parham makes her sixth visit to Bedford to present another of her acclaimed ‘Composer Portraits’ in words and music in aid of Sharnbrook Mill Theatre’s Cool Down Appeal.
Created to celebrate 200 years since Clara Wieck Schumann’s birth in 1819, I, Clara tells her extraordinary life story in her own words. Clara Schumann was a truly exceptional woman, not just a devoted wife to the composer Robert Schumann, but a ground-breaking musician in her own right. Over a period of 60 years she gave over 1500 concerts and determined the format of the kind of piano recital that is familiar to us today.
