Mad for Clara 

When: Sat., Jan. 23, 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 24, 2:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $14-$54

It's been hard to miss the Colorado Springs Philharmonic's ads for Mad for Clara, showing at 2:30 this afternoon at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org). Nothing like a possessed pair of eyes beneath bushy brows to drum up interest in a Masterworks concert highlighting Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto and featuring Denver violinist Linda Wang. Schumann, due either to syphilis or mercury poisoning, was losing his mind when he wrote this concerto; whether or not it's truly meant for his beloved wife and fellow musical genius, Clara, is hard to say. Regardless, it does make for a snappy title. Tickets for today's show (as well as last night's 8 p.m. offering) are $14 to $54. — Edie Adelstein
