Event Details

With “humanism, generosity, and a passionate, beating heart” (The Times), Scottish writer, Janice Galloway’s novel ‘Clara’ reignites, from between the lines of history, the great love of Robert and Clara Schumann. In her lifetime, Clara was a celebrated concert pianist and composer, editor and teacher, friend of Brahms – as well as mother of the eight Schumann children and caretaker of her husband through a series of crippling mental illnesses. In this special live presentation of her novel, Janice Galloway will read extracts from the book, interspersed with performances of the Schumanns’ music given by staff and students from the University of St Andrews
Music Centre.
