Happy Birthday, Franz Schubert! Friday, January 31, 2014
Franz Schubert was only thirty-two years old when he died in 1828. Nevertheless, he was very prolific during his life. In addition to composing symphonies, chamber works, and string quartets, he composed a lot of piano solo music. There are twenty-one piano sonatas, the impromptus, D. 899 and D. 935, and the Moments Musicaux. Some of the most-performed piano sonatas are D840, D845, and D960. He also composed more piano duet music than any other major composer. The most famous of his duets is Marche Militaire, D733, #1. Investigate this rich legacy of piano music!
