Did you know?
  • Schubert was the greatest composer of German art songs, writing over 600 during his lifetime, sometimes several in a single day.
  • His hero was Beethoven, but his own music was very different from the popular composer.
  • Schubert never found employment and survived only with help from friends who understood his genius.
  • Most of his music remained in manuscript form until after his death. His greatest works were never played in his lifetime.

Narrated by Arthur Hannes
