Birthday of Composer Franz Schubert

31 January 1797

Franz Schubert (31 January 1797 - 19 November 1828) was an Austrian composer of the Romantic period. Despite his relatively short life, he was extremely prolific. Schubert wrote about 600 'Lieder' (romantic art songs, setting German poems), nine symphonies and various other compositions like operas, chamber and solo piano music. His work was rediscovered and championed during the 19th century by composers like Franz Liszt. Schubert remains one of the most frequently performed composers.
