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.
