Franz Schubert

Original Arrangements of

Piano Works

This Schubert MP3 collection illustrates some of  the breadth of his work together with it's power  and originality. It has been substantially  increased with the latest recordings and now  has four more orchestral works including  movements from two symphonies.  Schubert was roughly contemporary with  Beethoven and both were students of Salieri -  Mozart's supposed rival. In his early  professional life he was a part time composer -  working as a teacher in his father's school. In  this selection we have examples such as  Erlkönig (ErlKing) song from his early period  contrasting with the Wanderer Fantasie which  was produced around the same time as the  Unfinished Symphony.  The keyboard works include two Impromptus  and the March Militaire where the steel drums  are variously accompanied by harp and  marimba. While in the ErlKing the steel drums  and vibraphone bring sunshine into the forests  of Austria but they are brought down to earth  by Moog Synthesized French Horns in the bass.  Impromptu Opus 90 No2           Impromptu Opus 90 No3  Impromptu No4 in A minor ** Seranade ** Fantasy Opus 103 ** Gretchen am Spinrade **

Der Lindenbaum ** Standchen ** March Militaire Opus 51 No1    Erlkönig (ErlKing) Wanderer - Fantasie in C major MP3:  This is, without a doubt, one of Schubert's most  monumental piano compositions. It was written  in November, 1822, a year that was distinguished  by the creation of works of enormous emotional  tension, dramatic power and concise, bold formal  construction. The work's title is derived from  Schubert's own song Der Wanderer (1816), a  short episode which provides the material for the  second movement of the Fantasie ("The sun  seems so cold to me here, the flowers seems  faded, life is odd", - runs Schmidt von Lubeck's  text). The Fantasie is in its own way a symphonic  poem, written for the piano and transcribed here  on Hammond Organ emulation (South American  preset) with the steel drums that handled the  varied moods and lyrical passages of the piece. First Movement  Second Movement   Third Movement  Fourth Movement Symphony No 8 in D Minor (The Unfinished Symphony) :  Movement 1 ** Allegro moderato,  Movement 2 ** Andante con moto Symphony No 9 in C Major (The Great Symphony) : Movement 1 ** Andante - Allegro ma non troppo — Piu Moto ** New Recordings 2014
