musical heroine of the Romantic period
The greatest female pianist of the 19th century is also a part of Graz’s music history. In 1870 Clara Schumann played her last concert in the Saal der Ressource right next to the present-day Congress in the Styrian capital. Ragna Schirmer, pianist from Halle, considers her to be the greatest musical heroine of the Romantic period. She is dedicated to collecting Clara’s concert programmes, returning them to the concert halls where they were performed.
On her own fortepiano, she revives Clara’s Graz programme of 1870.
