Happy Birthday, Franz Schubert!

Franz Schubert was only thirty-two years old when he died in 1828.  Nevertheless, he was very prolific during his life.   In addition to composing symphonies, chamber works, and string quartets, he composed a lot of  piano solo music. There are twenty-one piano sonatas, the impromptus, D. 899 and D. 935, and the Moments Musicaux.  Some of the most-performed piano sonatas are D840, D845, and D960.  He also composed more piano duet music than any other major composer.  The most famous of his duets is Marche Militaire, D733, #1.  Investigate this rich legacy of piano music!  You may contact us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at keyboard@stantons.com, or visit our website at http://www.stantons.com.  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
