(1797 - 1828)
Schubert was a Vienna-born
composer who created a fairly large body of great music.
He wrote a large number of
songs, and is considered to be the greatest songwriter of all times. He also composed
beautiful works for the piano, some passionately beautiful masses, and a number of
wonderful chamber compositions.
Schubert was a very great
composer, gifted in a way that only a mortal being in touch with the divine can be gifted.
He died at the age of 31!
