An Evening with Clara Schu­mann

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - Song of Love,

If you are a con­cert afi­cionado, you will know that the con­flu­ence of com­poser Robert Schu­mann; his wife, Clara, a lead­ing pi­anist of her time; and his dis­ci­ple Jo­hannes Brahms ei­ther does or does not rep­re­sent the great love tri­an­gle of clas­si­cal mu­sic. (Surely you’ve seen the 1947 movie star­ring Katharine Hep­burn, Paul Hen­reid, and Robert Walker. Well, that’s ex­actly how it didn’t hap­pen.) In a pro­gram ti­tled An Evening with Clara Schu­mann, pi­anist Karolina Sy­rovatkova of­fers a dra­matic in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the woman in the mid­dle, de­scrib­ing the sit­u­a­tion from that pi­anist’s point of view and per­form­ing Schu­mann’s C-ma­jor Fan­ta­sia (Op. 17) and Brahms’ Six Pi­ano Pieces (Op. 118). This free event — no tick­ets nec­es­sary — takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Fri­day, Nov. 11, in the Great Hall of Peter­son Stu­dent Cen­ter, St. John’s Col­lege (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca). For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call 505-984-6000. — J.M.K.
