Have you seen Google’s page today? I initially noticed the lady and the number of kids surrounding her. Knowing about Google’s way of honoring really special people, I thought that this woman is honored because she must be a mother to really many kids. Hahaha! So I clicked and learned that she is Clara Schumann. She is a German musician and today marks her 193rd birth anniversary. She is considered to be a major influence through changing the format and repertoire of the piano recital and the tastes of the listening public. She is married to Robert Schumann, a composer and together, they encouraged Johannes Brahms by giving public performance of some of Brahms’ masterpieces.
So cheers to you, Clara Schumann and thank you for the music!
