Franz Schubertís short, largely unknowable life framed a continuous, uncanny flow of inspired music. Destined to remain largely unknown during his life, Schubert composed because he had to and left a trail of masterpieces behind, sometime literally, dropping and forgetting many of them wherever he finished them (or
didnít.) He wrote music in every genre from song to symphony. His ability to unlock the most intimate depths of feeling almost effortlessly continues to awe musician and music lover alike. Join us for a survey of his life, times and. especially, his music. Some basic knowledge of classical forms (e.g. sonata form, string quartets,
symphonies) is highly desirable.
