CLARA'S FAMILY
When Clara was just 4 years old their parents were divorced and Clara was raised by Fredrich, Clara's first instrument was a piano which her Father taught her at the age of 5 years old. When she was 8 years old she performed at the Dr. Ernst Carus' mental hospital. At the age of 14 Clara was practicing a piano concerto and when she was 16 she performed in the Leipzig Gewandhaus orchestra which was conducted by Felix Mendelssohn.

Clara Wieck performed a series of recitals in Vienna from December 1837 to April 1838
But she got divorced so she wasn't there for Clara very much
Clara's career was becoming a great piano player with Robert's encouragement; she aimed to be the best piano player ever and to talk about concerts and stuff with Robert which he totally hated. One day when Robert wanted to be a conductor or administrator but unfortunately he failed and everyone was complaining as Clara was his wife she tried to protect Robert. After that Robert suffered from Asylum.
So that meant Clara was the one stuck with all the house chores.
