Clara Schumann

Clara Wieck was a musical prodigy. Her mother Marianne was a singer; her overbearing father, Friedrich, a music teacher.

She went on to marry one of the greatest composers in history, Robert Schumann, bear eight children, and become a successful composer in her own right.

But perhaps her most enduring legacy is that she invented the classical piano recital.
