To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann, pianist Lucy Parham, who is internationally known for her Composer Portrait series, has updated Beloved Clara, the compelling and tragic story of the passionate, tragic and volatile relationship between Robert Schumann, his pianist wife Clara Wieck and Johannes Brahms.


The narrative comprises poignant letters and diaries interspersed with solo piano works by all three composers, as well as those by Mendelssohn and Liszt.


For this performance Lucy Parham is joined by renowned actors Henry Goodman and Juliet Stevenson, who previously starred together in Duet For One in London’s West End.
