Author/Composer:Author/Composer:Franz Schubert
Description:Description:Franz Schubert spent a good part of spring 1817 and most of the following summer composing piano sonatas. The first of these 1817 sonatas, the Piano Sonata in A minor, D. 537, written during March and published some 35 years later as Opus 164, is also in fact the first work of its kind that Schubert managed to finish; each of the previous three piano sonatas is incomplete or fragmentary. Schubert had just turned 19 when he wrote the piece, and already he had achieved things previously unimagined in the world of German song; but success as a composer of instrumental music would elude him for some time to come. D. 537 reveals both those facets of genius that would enable him to eventually make his own mark on concert music, and those obstacles that, as a young composer, he at times found insurmountable.
