Arts Music Composition Composers S Schubert, Franz Peter
Although Austrian Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828) lived during the Classical period, in many respects he was the protypical Romantic composer. His output over his brief life is scarcely rivaled and he was able to excel in several genres. During much of his life, his hundreds of Lieder and song-cycles attracted the most attention, but he also wrote symphonies, theater music, and religious music. He also composed several operas, but they are seldom performed or remembered.
