The Academy Song Circle presents the complete songs of Clara Schumann. Unlike Fanny Mendelssohn and Alma Mahler, whose creative talents were stifled by their families, Clara was encouraged to compose by both her father and her husband. In addition to touring as a concert pianist and bringing up her family, this remarkable woman composed piano and chamber music and some 30 songs. This concert features her entire Lieder output.

Tickets: £16 available from Wigmore Hall Box Office.
