Clara Schumann, sassy Victorian pianist, gets Google Doodle honor

September 13, 2012|By Rene Lynch

Despite such hardships, Schumann refused to be defined by a conventional life and used her musical talents to support herself and her family.

"She concentrated on her own career and her many obligations as she endeavored to reconcile the conflicts that inevitably arise when a woman steps out of her conventional place," Reich wrote in her book. "Clara Schumann was always her own person, perceiving herself as an artist who was a woman, and eternally grateful for the art that was to sustain her through a lifetime of tragedy and triumph."
