Words and music

Not at all connected but anniversaries today of two luminaries in the world of words and music.

Roald Dahl

Too old to read him as a child but my niece recently bought a collection of his books for my great niece so I had a good time dipping into them.  Feeding my 8 year old self.
Clara Schumann
The trailer for a German film gives a flavour of her success as a pianist, her love for and heartache of life with Robert Schumann and the relationship with Brahms much of whose music was dedicated to her.
