In this survey of Franz Schubert's instrumental music, John Bell Young explores some of the richest and most memorable music ever written.

How did the prolific composer of the C major String Quintet and more than a thousand other masterpieces manage to achieve so much in a career that spanned less than two decades? Young's colourful analyses of a representative swath of Schubert's greatest symphonic, Piano, and chamber works deftly illuminate these issues.

An accompanying full-length CD features superb performances by Paul Badura-Skoda, Juana Zayas and others.
