Following the Schumann anniversaries in 2006, the 150th anniversary of Robert Schumann’s death, and in 2010, the 200th anniversary of Robert Schumann’s birth in 2010, there will now be a Clara Schumann anniversary on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of her birth in 2019.
On the page 200th anniversary of Robert Schumann’s birth in 2010, you will find a brief review of this Schumann anniversary, so eventful in many respects and reverberating to this day (hopefully “for ever”), which paid tribute to and celebrated the composer with a variety of events of the most diverse formats and a large volume of sound recordings, books, videos, films, etc. all over the world. An overview of events, even though part of them only, can be found in the Schumann weeks calendar 1.1.-31.12.2010.
