Franz Schubert

Franz Schubert was a composer whose work bridged two eras of Western classical music; his compositions exemplify the balance and poise of the earlier Classical era as well as the expressive harmonic language, lyricism and poetic sense that are hallmarks of the Romantic era. Known for his inventiveness and originality, Schubert made significant contributions to the genres of orchestral, chamber, and piano music. He is best known for his lieder, in which he set German poems of his day to music for voice and piano. Schubert’s writing brings these poems to life, depicting natural scenes like the rippling of water and the trotting of horse hooves through music. This evocation of the natural and mythical through song enriched the German lied with new levels of depth and imagination. Though he only lived to the age of 32, Schubert remains among the most prolific composers in Western classical music, having completed over 1000 works. His music had a profound influence on those who followed in the Romantic tradition, including Schumann, Brahms, and Mahler.
