Composing Clara

You know Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms…

…but have you heard of Clara Schumann?

She traded ivory earrings for the ivory keys — and stroked them like she was expected to stroke the egos of the men surrounding her.

This is the story of the most gifted woman musician of the romantic era as she navigates life as a pianist, composer, and mother of seven — while dominating in the man’s world of music.
