    200th birthday Clara Schumann & Elizabeth Stirling

    I don't know if Clara Schumann's 200th birthday has been noted or is celebrated in any way in the English speaking world... over here, there have been quite a few concerts with her works and sometimes heated discussions on female composers.
    Clara didn't write any pieces specifically for organ, but there are a few nicely arranged preludes and fugues that were originally written for piano. I will play some of them in my upcoming recital in October.

    For organists, it might also be interesting that we can celebrate Elizabeth Stirling's 200th birthday this year. Unfortunately, not many of her works have been printed and are available. There are none on imslp, as far as I know. I've played several of her pieces already and will play her Air with variations and a shorter piece in my recital.
