Austrian composer. Franz Schubert, an early romantic Austrian composer, is best known for his lieder German art songs for voice and piano during the nineteenth century.
A new profusion of lyric poetry and the evolution of the piano into a highly complex mechanism allowed the gifted Schubert to compose exceptional lyrics. Childhood and training. Encouraged to pursue his talents in music, Franz received instruction in the violin from his father, his older brother Ignaz, and Michael Holzer, the organist at the Liechtenthal parish church.

And she balances that control by revealing the innermost spirit of the music. It's as consistently evident as the technique needed for such communication is concealed. Cooper seems to remember that, although Schubert was Imogen Cooper - Schubert Live • Volume Three at the start of Imogen Cooper - Schubert Live • Volume Three Romantic period, he was also No.8 in A Flat minor - Schubert* at the end of the Classical.
