Six Sessions

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer of the late Classical and early Romantic eras. Despite his short lifetime, he left us a great body of incredible music, including more than six hundred secular vocal works, seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large repertoire of piano and chamber music. While alive, appreciation of Schubert's music was limited to a small circle of admirers in Vienna, but interest in his work increased significantly in the decades following his death. We will explore him biographically and musically, and listen to many of his great compositions.
