KIRKUS REVIEW

A thorough, definitive and highly readable study of Schubert, a sympathetic study of the man and an understanding of his music. The first two thirds will prove good reading even to those with no particular musical background; the last section deals with the music in greater detail. Schubert came from a peasant background, was one of numerous brothers and sisters and at his best in the large circle of friends and admirers, portrayed in detail here.
