A Schubert playlist

Although Schubert tragically died young and left many unfinished compositions (not just the famous “Unfinished” Symphony), his legacy is as prolific composer. Completing his first symphony at 16, he went on to compose more than 1500 works, including seven symphonies, overtures, operas, sacred music, a plethora of chamber music and some 600 lieder, or art songs. My favorites out of all those pieces are on this playlist. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. — Erica Sharp

One thought on “A Schubert playlist

  1. Nothing wrong with these selections and of course there are plenty of choices when it comes to masterpieces by Schubert, but one gem that I would definitely add to this short list is his “Tod und Mädchen” String Quartet which for me is the greatest string quartet ever written.
