Meet the Composer - Robert and Clara Schumann

 TARDIS materializingBack to Just for Kids page

e've ridden the TARDIS back in time over 30 years to 1848 and arrived in Dresden, Germany to meet Clara Schumann's husband, the composer Robert Schumann. We find Robert busy composing the Album for the Young, Op. 68 for his daughter Marie's birthday. Let's see if we can tear him away from this labor of love long enough to talk with him and Clara.
