2019 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann, a remarkable musician-pianist-composer whose achievements had been generally overshadowed by that of her husband Robert Schumann. The Divertimento Piano Trio pays tribute to this great artist in a concert featuring one of her finest works, the G minor Piano Trio Op 17, written when she was 27 years old, and heard in London for the first time in 1873 on one of her frequent concert tours to England. Complementing the G minor Trio are two works that Clara knew intimately and performed often - Robert Schumann’s Fantasiestücke Op.88, his earliest work for piano trio, and Schubert’s magnificent E-flat Trio D929.
