Google doodle pays tribute to Clara Schumann on her 193rd birthday
California: Search giant Google Inc. paid tribute to German musician Clara Schumann with a doodle to mark her 193rd birthday. Visitors to Google's homepage were greeted with a doodle of Schumann appearing to play the piano in the presence of her children. As in the past clicking the doodle will take the visitor to the search results page for ‘Clara Schumann.’

Born on September 13, 1819, Clara Schumann was a famous German musician and composer. She is also one of the most distinguished pianists of her time. Her parents Marianne and Friedrich Wieck divorced when she was just five years old. She was then raised by her father who taught her how to play piano.

Clara made her first public debut when she was nine years old and as eleven years old she toured Paris playing solo recitals.

Schumann spent her childhood practicing and taking music lessons from her father, being tutored in language and music theory and attending. Her father was her first and only music teacher.

At the age of 18 Clara performed a series of recitals in Vienna. As a teenager she fell in love with Robert Schumann, one of her father’s students and later married him just before her 21st birthday writing a petition to Court of Appeal to marry without the consent of Friedrich Wieck.

Clara and Robert went on to a musical life together, she as a con cert pianist and he as a composer. Though later her family life was hit by tragedy- family responsibilities, career concerns and health problems took over. Four of her eight children and her husband predeceased her, and her husband and one of her sons ended their lives in insane asylums. She herself became deaf in her later life and often would need a wheelchair. Clara suffered a stroke on March 26, 1896, and died on May 20, in the same year at the age of 76.
