10 for Clara – The chamber music festival at CLARA19

As part of the Anniversary Year CLARA19 for Clara Schumann’s 200th birthday

Especially for this anniversary year, the director of the Schumann-Haus, Gregor Nowak, was able to initiate a separate chamber music festival “10 for Clara1” (September 18th-22nd, 2019) as part of the Schumann Festival Weeks.

“We would like to recreate the intensive chamber music life of the Schumanns with this “10 for Clara” The most influential artists of the 19th century got together here in the salons of Leipzig, played the newest compositions or arrangements, and exchanged ideas. Ten internationally renowned artists concertize together for one week in places that were awarded the European Cultural Heritage Label in 2018. In “Clara’s Club” at Inselstraße 18 things continue after the concert. In a relaxed atmosphere, accompanied by DJ sets by Johannes Malfatti, there is an opportunity to mingle and to listen to a small preview of the next evening.”

Experience artists such as Antje Weithaas, Dong Suk Kang and Sayako Kusaka (violin), Pauline Sachse (viola), Marie-Elisabeth Hecker and Peter Bruns (violoncello), Martin Helmchen, Antti Siirala and Annegret Kuttner (piano), among others. The ten artists will play five concerts in four locations: the Schumann-Haus (September 18th + 22nd, 2019), in the Summer Hall of the Bach-Museum (09/19/19), in the Old St. Nicholas School (09/20/19), and in the Grieg museum (09/21/19). For all five concerts as well as the three evenings in “Clara’s Club” there is a limited amount of festival passes available.
