Happy Birthday #222 Franz Schubert

Happy Birthday Franz Schubert!

Franz Schubert [1797-1828]
On January 31, 1797 one of the greatest composers, Franz Schubert was born in Vienna, Austria.  This child prodigy of the late classical, early Romantic era of music died at the age of 31, and despite his short life this true genius was a prolific composer of many forms of classical music.  He completed many overtures, symphonies, chamber music, and some of the most beautiful pieces [sonatas, impromptus] for solo piano and songs for voice. 

Franz Schubert, with his beautiful melodic compositions, is one of my favorite composers.  I think by these following melodic compositions you will understand why I love Franz Schubert's brilliant beautiful music.
