MUSIC

For the second of three chamber concerts, two wonderful works by relatively unsung female composers, Clara Schumann (1819-1896) and Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979) are presented. The former was a German pianist, composer and piano teacher, married to Robert Schumann. Most of her music was largely forgotten until a resurgence of interest in the 1970s. Clarke’s output was not large, though her work was recognised for its compositional skill and artistic power. Rebecca Clarke’s Piano Trio and Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio are absolute treasures.

History

New Romney was once a thriving port, with the harbour adjacent to St Nicholas' Church, in front of which a mooring ring can still be seen. In 1287 a storm changed the coastline dramatically and the port was destroyed, the town now being more than a mile from the sea. Four feet of silt were deposited inside the Church and around, which accounts for it being lower than the surrounding area. Large numbers of visitors come annually, attracted by the unique history and architecture; the church is one of the finest in the Diocese of Canterbury.
