The city Leipzig plans to knock down walls in Robert Schumann’s former home, now a museum, in order to expand exhibition space for his dearly beloved in her bicentennial year, 2019.
The authenticity of the building will be sacrificed on an altar of phoney equality. It’s a ridiculous plan.
Why not build Clara a new museum in her own right? After all, she has a birthplace in Leipzig and she outlived Rob by fully 40 years.
