Clara is torn between the love of her husband, composer Robert Schumann, who is institutionalized after suffering a mental collapse, and the attention of the younger composer and pianist Brahms.This tragic romance is enacted on stage to the music of Brahms as played by the Bergonzi String Quartet.
Since 1992, the Bergonzi String Quartet has been Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Miami Frost School of Music, where all four performers are faculty members: Scott Flavin (violin), Evija Ozolias (violin), Chauncey Patterson (viola) and Ross Harbaugh (cello). Prior to joining the Quartet, the four members were part of the New World, Pro Arte, Miami, and Ellis String Quartets, and have collective performing experience with concerts through-out Europe, U.K., North and South America, New Zealand, and Asia. The quartet performs masterworks, premieres, new compositions, and presents original repertoire, in programming that delight audiences around the globe. It has released seven recordings.
