The Schumanns at home.

The superb soprano Sophie Bevan makes her Middle Temple Hall debut on the 22nd of January in our first concert of the season.

Clara and Robert Schumann’s musical circle was particularly wide and included some of the most celebrated composers, writers and performers living and working in Europe. Sophie Bevan and Julius Drake have drawn their programme from a collection of the most illustrious of their friends and visitors, including Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, Fredrik Chopin, Heinrich Heine, Hans Christian Anderson, Franz Liszt and Johannes Brahms.

Rather like the characters who stalk Schumann’s piano cycle ‘Carnival’, here is an imagined concert party in Leipzig in 1841, with four songs from the hosts and each of their celebrated guests.
