Libby Burgess on the life and music of Clara Schumann

We are thrilled to open our Hull Chamber Music's 2019-20 season with rising talent Isata Kanneh-Mason. In view of her recently-released Decca Classics debut album, Isata brings to the audience a musical portrait of Clara Schumann's life, in an intense programme celebrating the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth.

"A woman must not desire to compose — there has never yet been one able to do it. Should I expect to be the one?"
Clara Schumann
"Isata is an immensely talented pianist with remarkable musicality and a curious mind, always ready to explore new musical horizons"
Dr. Alexander Buhr, Managing Director of Decca Classics.
