Franz schubert schubert - jörg demus winterreise op. 89 - sechs lieder nach schober und leitner


Franz Schubert was born in Vienna in 1797. When he was very young his father and his older brother taught him to play the violin and the piano. In a couple of months he had learnt more about playing the piano than his brother knew. So when the family realized Franz's abilities they did everything they could with their little income to procure a good education for the boy. He was therefore sent to the Stadtkonvikt in Vienna. Here he met Antonio Salieri who was very impressed by him: "He must be taught by God himself", he said.

When he left the College in 1814, Schubert taught at his father's school, though this had little effect on his enthusiasm for composition. Indeed, that autumn his Mass #7 in F Major was performed to great acclaim, also his first lieder masterpiece, "Gretchen am Spinnrade" (to words from Goethe's Faust); he was just 17. The following year was even more impressive: symphonies, operas (no less than four attempted in one year), chamber music and nearly 150 songs spilled from his pen, all written out of a determination to earn money from his music so that he could escape the need for earning it through his detested teaching. Of the songs, the Goethe setting, "Der Erlkönig", is the most remarkable and most famous. A friend sent this and 30 other Goethe settings to the great man himself in Weimar. They were returned unaccompanied by any offer of help; Goethe did not appreciate Schubert's attempts to heighten the poet's words through his musical commentary.
