Carolyn Sampson and Joseph Middleton bring you Elysium – Songs of the Spirit and the Soul
Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer of the late Classical and early Romantic eras.
Despite his short lifetime (1797 – 1828) Schubert left behind a vast oeuvre, including more than 600 secular vocal works, seven complete symphonies, sacred music, operas, incidental music and a large body of piano and chamber music. His major works include the Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667, the Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D. 759, the ”Great” Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944, the String Quintet, the three last piano sonatas, the opera Fierrabras, the incidental music to the play Rosamunde, and the song cycles Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise.
