The Song Writing
Superiority of
Franz Schubert

Schubert was born in Vienna in 1797. He also died there in 1828. His father, a school-master, was his first teacher. Later, he studied theory with Salieri (1812) and completed his first symphony in the following year.

In 1817, Schubert gave up teaching and lived with friends. During this period, he met Michael Vogl (a great interpreter of Schubert’s songs). Others who crossed paths with Schubert included the painter Leopold Kupelweiser and musician Franz Lachner.

Schubert was one of the greatest melodic writers of all time, as can be seen in the quality and quantity of songs that he wrote. With the exception of concertos (he didn’t write any) and operas, he is still today considered to be a composer of the highest caliber.

An Amazing Schubert Fact

Schubert constantly struggled financially. To make matters worse, many of his best works were performed after his death.
