SCHUBERT: A Musical Portrait by Alfred Einstein

SCHUBERT: A Musical Portrait

Email this review


A modern, musicologist has written a scholarly critique of the early 19th century Viennese composer's incomparable lieder and song cycles, symphonies, and unsuccessful ventures into the operatic field. Different in handling from his life of Mozard, for Schubert's life was uneventful and experienced almost wholly through his music. Readers will turn to Deutsch' Schubert Reader for supplemental biographical data. Caviar for the cognoscenti.
