The Leipzig Schumann Festival week honours the famous composer couple.
Schumann Festival Week in Leipzig, the Music City
The Schumann Festival Week, which takes place around Robert and Clara Schumann's wedding anniversary on 12 September and Clara's birthday on 13 September, shines a light on the couple's life and work.
Another friend of the family tends to step into the limelight. Look forward to excellent chamber music recitals and guided tours.
2018 Festival Week
The festival week taking place from 08 to 16 September 2018 will already, to some extent, be setting the wheels in motion for Clara Schumann's 200th anniversary in 2019. To pay tribute to Clara Schumann, Leipzig's Schumann Association e.V. (registered association) would like to open a redesigned museum. The promise of renowned artists performing at events and concerts during this festival week serves to promote the initiative.
