Superwoman: The Unique Compositional Voice of Clara Schumann in Her Piano Sonata in G Minor

We will delve into the unique compositional voice heard in Clara Schumann's unjustly forgotten Sonata in G minor. Written when she was twenty and unpublished until 1991, the four movement work gives us many layers - fiery contrapuntal complexity, open hearted lyricism, orchestral thinking and pianism that was Clara's alone.
