Clara (Wieck) Schumann, born 200 years ago this year, was an extraordinary figure: overshadowed in the history books by her husband Robert, but in reality a musical powerhouse in her own right. An inspired composer, brilliant and famous pianist, muse to Brahms and others, and mother of eight children, she led a long, complex and fascinating life.
