Franz Schubert

An Austrian composer of great repute, Franz Peter Schubert (b. January 31, 1797 – d.November 19, 1828), is considered to be the last grandmaster of the Viennese Classical school of music, as well as one of the earliest proponents of Romanticism. Although Schubert died at the age of 31, he is counted among the most gifted composers of the 19th century. He was possessed of a flair for melodies and lyricism, and he left an enormous legacy of musical wealth behind.
