Clara Schumann is perhaps classical music’s most under-appreciated composer. Overshadowed by her more famous husband Robert, she might be compared to the art world’s Lee Krasner (who married Jackson Pollock): Two brilliant women whose work struck awe in the hearts of their peers but whose public profiles were stymied by their gender. Schumann’s Drei Lieder (“Three Songs”), originally composed for voice and piano, has been arranged for voice and string quartet, sandwiched between Haydn and Mozart and their two towering examples of the string quartet genre.
