and texts from »Schumann's shadow« by Peter Härtling

In 1853 an encounter in Düsseldorf led to one of the most important friendships between artists of the 19th century: the young Johannes Brahms visited Robert and Clara Schumann. Their inspiration was heightened by their enthusiasm for Brahms' compositional skills. "A genius," Robert rejoiced, and Clara insisted: "... he comes as if sent by God himself." A creative love triangle was born... with all its ups and downs, as well as mysteries and conjectures. Clara Schumann is no stranger to actress Martina Gedeck, she already embodied the compser and pianist in Helma Sanders-Brahms' film »Beloved Clara«. With excerpts from Peter Härtling's book "Schumann's Shadow", she provides illuminating literary insights that the Schumann Quartet - consisting of brothers Mark, Erik and Ken Schumann together with Veit Hertenstein – add to with music. In this way, one of the most influential creative forces of the Romantic era is brought back to life before our eyes and ears!
