Clara Schumann was the celebrated 19th century pianist and composer, wife of composer Robert Schumann and mother of his eight children. Their musical careers were both marred by Robert’s crippling mental illness and their constant battle to provide for such a large family. Clara is a woman of great strength and talent, filled with enormous love for her family but also burdened by intense sadness. A lyrical study of music, love and madness.
