Format: Audio CD
In the Asylum Hill neighborhood of Hartford, CT, there is a tourist attraction called Nook Farm. Mark Twain's flamboyant red-brick, sidewheeler-style house is there. Across the lawn is a more austere white-brick house formerly occupied by the Rev. and Mrs. Calvin Stowe. Mrs. Stowe was a daughter of the Rev. Lyman Beecher, one of the most famous Protestant clergymen in 19th-century America. After serializing "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in 1851, this shy, slight woman was gently chided eleven years later by President Lincoln as being "the little woman who wrote the book that started this great war!"
Across the Atlantic, Clara Wieck Schumann was the best-known female concert pianist in the world. Unlike her contemporary Stowe, she lived a very public life. The wife of composer Robert Schumann, Clara had sublimated her own composing career in order to champion her mentally ill husband's, arranging to have his works performed at every opportunity.
In 1853 (or thereabouts), Stowe went on an abolitionist tour of Great Britain. Clara Schumann is supposed to have been in London at about the same time. The two ladies never met but Chamber Music Plus's Harry Clark decided to speculate on what they might have said to one another had they actually met. (In an earlier version of this Parallel Portrait, held at the Avery Theater of the Wadsworth Atheneum, this writer--an operatic baritone--performed an utterly forgettable bit of musical ephemera written to celebrate Stowe's trip: "Welcome to London, Harriet Beecher Stowe." Happily, that strophic ditty was dropped from the show and does not take up space on this CD!)
The present recording, featuring actress Jill Clayburgh, represents Clark's evolving thoughts about the format of this unusual genre.
