Franz Schubert Guides

Ave Maria, the Octet, the Impromptus… just a few of Schubert's trailblazing work, but what was the great Austrian composer really like? In our Fast And Friendly Guide, we set his biography to a humorous, animated video that gets you the ultimate facts. And fast.

From his beginnings as a chorister in Vienna, to the patronage of Salieri, to his career as a teacher and his prolific musical outpt, we trace the life of one of the world's greatest composers.
