Synopsis: The New Grove composer biographies have been selected from the dictionary to bring the finest of the biographies to a wider audience. Each has been expanded and updated for book publication and contains a comprehensive work-list, index, and fully revised bibliography, in addition to the definitive view of the subject's life and works.

Maurice J. E. Brown, one of the world's leading authorities on Schubert, completed this fine biography of the composer shortly before his death. He covers every aspect of Schubert's short and tragic life, clearly relating it to the works. He discusses the influence of Schubert's friends and explores the background to the composition of many of his best-known pieces, such as Winterreise. The biography has been brought up to date by Eric Sams, who also contributed the outstanding work-list.

Review: The most remarkable composer of song literature in the history of Western music, Franz Schubert sometimes gets overlooked in favor of his more bombastic contemporaries. 1997 marks the bicentennial of his birth; record companies and concert programmers, who love such pegs, have accordingly scheduled loads of Schubert for the year. You can find some useful insights into the composer and his work with this biography, a slightly expanded version of the essay written for the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Also helpful is the detailed chronicle of his music, arranged by type and date of composition.
