Hostovanie Clary Wieckovej (Schumannovej) roku 1838 v Bratislave
Guest appearance of Clara Wieck (Schumann) in Bratislava in 1838
Languages of publication
The study is concerned with the first guest appearance of the piano virtuoso Clara Wieck (1819–1896) in Bratislava in 1838, hitherto unknown in Slovak music-historical literature. She presented works by Adolf Henselt and Fryderyk Chopin, and compositions of her own at concerts held on March 31 and April 2, 1838, organised by the director of the theatrical society Franz Pokorny. Local artists also appeared in the programme. Posters of the concerts have survived, along with mentions in Clara Wieck’s diary and references in her correspondence with Robert Schumann. The local press, however, did not make any mention of these concerts, in contrast to the artist’s two further guest appearances in Bratislava in 1856 and 1866.
