WORDS AND MUSIC of Clara Schumann & Alma Mahler
May 6, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Presented by Sandy Gore and Donna Balson.
“Too often women must love where they admire, and admiring emulate, and by emulation are absorbed unto the myth of the master, in which they are most fervent believers.”These words from the 1971 book The Obstacle Race: The Fortunes of Women Painters and Their Work by Germaine Greer, might have been written about Clara Schumann and Alma Mahler. Both highly trained and accomplished musicians, their musical ambitions were channeled into facilitating, championing and assisting in the work of their celebrated husbands.The performance will combine the songs of both women with readings from their letters and diaries.
