can I help Clara Schumann?
A . The best way you can help is by telling your friends about ClaraSchumann.net, and encouraging them to visit! Also, the challenge of the Clara '96 campaign is to stimulate the performance of the music of Clara Schumann - the call is to music schools, conservatories, and concert halls around the world to commit themselves to perform all of her music, and to students, performers, teachers and professors to do their part by performing a single opus in a recital, or by presenting a whole concert of her works. Many others can help by encouraging students to study her music, by conducting research on her life and music, by playing her music on the radio and television, by purchasing recordings and scores, and by attending concerts of her music.
should I do if I know of a Clara Schumann performance or event?
A . If you know of a performance of any of Clara Schumann's music, or an event in which her life or works are discussed or presented, please submit details to the ClaraSchumann.net Webmaster. These concerts and events will be posted (as time permits) on the Clara Today page of the website. For a list of details needed, visit How to advertise here??
