Much praise is given to both Johannes Brahms and Robert Schumann for their contributions to orchestral music.  Robert’s wife, Clara, however, sometimes get’s forgotten in the shuffle of time. 

A remarkable pianist and composer, Clara Schumann holds her own with some of the greatest composers for the piano and the orchestra. 

Oberlin Conservatory professor Angela Cheng performs Clara Schumann’s piano concerto, while the Canton Symphony Orchestra also features Brahms’ Tragic Overture and Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 3
