Her Piano Sang: A Story about Clara Schumannby Barbara Allman, Shelly O. Haas (Illustrator)
At the age of nine, Clara Wieck gave her first public performance as a concert pianist. She remembered everything her father hail taught her, and she played beautifully. Audiences adored her, and she became friends with many famous musicians, including Felix Mendelssohn, Nicolo Paganini, Jenny Lind, and her father's student, Robert Schumann, whom she eventually married. Her Piano Sang introduces young readers to a woman whose performances set the standard for piano music.
A fine introduction to a strong, disciplined artist. Haas's black-and-white illustrations feature unusual compositions and fit the text well.
