Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer, considered the last master of the Viennese Classical School and one of the earliest proponents of Romanticism. Schubert was born in Vienna in 1797 and was the son of an impoverished schoolmaster and amateur musician. Despite a meager musical education, Schubert wrote his first opera, The Devil's Pleasure-Castle, in 1814. The next year Schubert completed his second and third symphonies, wrote two masses, and worked on five operas. He continued his prolific work over the next 13 years, including the composition of hundreds of songs. In 1823 his first song cycle, Die schöne Müllerin, appeared, based upon poems by Wilhelm Müller. This work, together with the later cycle Winterreise, also written to texts of Müller, is widely considered one of the pinnacles of Schubert's work and of the German Lied in general. Schubert died of what most believe to be typhoid fever in 1828, at the age of 31. He was buried next to Beethoven, whom he had adored all his life. Despite his brief life, he wrote some six hundred songs, nine symphonies, sonatas, string quartets, and other works. During his lifetime, public appreciation was limited. He was never able to secure permanent employment and relied on the support of family and friends. However, interest in his work increased dramatically following his death, and over 100 of his compositions were published posthumously.
