The Story of Schubert (1791 -1828)

A narrator discusses the composer's life, and specially selected music is played - an interesting, informative way to learn more about the giants of classical music.

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

SPECIAL BONUS: Following The Story of Schubert with Music, you will hear the complete Symphony no. 5 in B-flat Major.
