Clara Schumann (/ˈʃuːmɑːn/; née Clara Josephine Wieck; 13 September 1819 – 20 May 1896) was a German pianist, composer and piano teacher. Regarded as one of the most distinguished pianists of the Romantic era, she exerted her influence over a 61-year concert career, changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital from displays of virtuosity to programs of serious works. She also composed solo piano pieces, a piano concerto (her Op. 7), chamber music, choral pieces, and songs.

Was exactly what I needed. Gift for granddaughter and she loved it.

My 10 year old daughter needed to write a book report on a historical person and she plays piano. She decided to seek a woman pianist and we found this book on Clara Schumann. It was long enough and written well enough for her above average reading level, however understandable and interesting for someone her age as well. Organized and truly paints a picture of what Clara Schumann's life was like. I would reccommend it to everyone looking to learn about the piano virtuoso's life.

This book is very enjoyable and easy to read. It is well researched and based on her ( the author's) mother's extensive study on Clara Schumann's life. The pictures and illustrations really bring this biography to life. I couldn't put the book down. Read it all in an afternoon. It is wonderful to have this history on women's music. I remember years ago during the eighties all this wasn't available. But now thanks to authors and writers like this one, we can recognize the accomplishments of women. This is a must have especially for music majors.

great job

It's a good book for a child who is interested in music. Clara is a good role model for girls.

Clara Schumann (nee Wieck) lived a heroic life that would inspire anyone in any age. She lived a life of amazing contrasts: unable to speak with other people when she was young; a piano virtuoso at age 6; the student of a domineering father; the oldest child in a broken home at a young age; the major source of income for her family all her life; a young woman who had to defy her father to marry the man of her dreams; mother of 8 children; young widow; wife of one of the world's most famous composers; constantly on tour while raising her children; friend of the most prodigious muscial talents of her day; and the dominant piano performer of her time.
This book is written at a level that will appeal to all but the most serious musical fans and students. The book is full of interesting illustrations and exhibits. I enjoyed the discussion of the sources in the back of the book. The author's mother has also written about Clara Schumann, so they were able to share data. Ms. Schumann's diary was started by her father, so it contains information from both of them. She also loved to write to her friends, and spent several hours a day doing that. As a result, there are a lot of quotes in her own words.
Amazingly modern, yet little known to many modern people, Clara Schumann faced many of the conflicts and contradictions that today's young women and mothers face. Her brave and extraordinary life can provide inspiration and guidance for today . . . and tomorrow.
I especially encourage you to share this book with young people who have extraordinary talent or a calling at a young age, to help them understand what some of the issues are that they will face over the rest of their lives.

(...) That reason is because this book provides all the necessary information needed to fill your brain with a river of knowledge about this musical genius. A few templates of information I had read from the book were:
* At age 5, Clara Schumann (her name was Clara Wieck, up until she married) had amazing talent for the average child in the world at the time. As it says, as soon as she layed her fingers on the keys of the piano for the first time, she already yielded her amazing skill at music.
* Amazing for a child in her pre-teens, her first concert was conducted at age 12, at the Gewandhaus Theatre in her birthplace and what was one of her many hometowns of Leipzig, Saxony, in Germany. One of the many guests she played for were the King and Queen of Prussia.
* Not suprising for a 16-year-old, she fell deeply in love with Robert Schumann, which, like all superstars, affected her music by how emotional her music sounded to her audience, although this aspect did not affect the quality of her music, as her emotions leaked into her music and it either told her audience whether she felt gloomy or joyful. A way it affected her personal life was by angering her father, Frederick Wieck, because he did not want anything to do with Robert Schumann. He threatened Clara that if she didn't break up with Robert, he would launch her career into mass jeopardy. So that didn't stop her from communicating with Robert. She wrote letters secretly to Robert, and all the letters she wrote to Robert up unto his death in the 1850s would fill several bookshelves.
* She had seven children total, of which a few suffered terrible fates. Her son Ferdinand served in the military and he died of morphine addiction.
* Some of her friends were Felix Mendelsohnn and Johannes Brahms.

In my opinion, I feel the author of this book, Sussana Reich, should be renowned the world over because of all the thought, effort, and precision she put into this biographical journey. She gives you every little detail you need to know about this genius. While some biographies just have the basic texts of a book, she included a timeline which I found especially helpful when I was writing a biographical report about her. This author is truely an individual who stands out from the rest of the crowd. In fact she has "convinced" me so much about her that I feel she will convince you the same way!
Fascinating story of an incredible musical talent. This book is perfectly aimed at middle school readers, or anyone wanting an overview of a fascinating life. The language and detail are specific enough, without going into unnecessary depth for the audience. Not that the author sugar-coats Clara Schumann's life: her personal difficulties and family tragedies share time with her concert triumphs, her love for her husband, and her personal work ethic. I would recommend this book to any young reader, particularly a person with a single notable talent, or to any girl.
