Notes and Editorial Reviews

Franz Peter Schubert (January 31, 1797 – November 19, 1828) was an Austrian composer. He wrote some 600 lieder, nine symphonies (including the famous "Unfinished Symphony"), liturgical music, operas, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. He is particularly noted for his original melodic and harmonic writing. While Schubert had a close circle of friends and associates who admired his work (including his teacher Antonio Salieri, and the prominent singer Johann Michael Vogl), wider appreciation of his music during his lifetime was limited at best.

He was never able to secure adequate permanent employment, and for most of his career he relied on the support of friends and family. Interest in Schubert's work
Read more increased dramatically in the decades following his death and he is now widely considered to be one of the greatest composers in the Western tradition. A student of Rudolf Serkin and Mieczyslaw Horszowski at the Curtis Institute of Music, Seymour Lipkin won the prestigious Rachmaninoff Competition at age 19. Since 1987, Mr. Lipkin has been the Artistic Director of the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival, and is on the faculties of both the Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute of Music.

His set of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas on Newport, has been chosen as one of the best of 2004 by the Boston Globe
