A young Viennese man who was most famous for his lieder was franz Schubert (1797- 1828) In his short life span Schubert wrote more than 600 lieder. He also wrote 8 symphonies, 15 string quartets, 21 piano sonatas seven masses and for operas. This is a huge output for someone who lived to be only 31 when he died. He died just one year after Beethoven did. Schubert lived the life of a ‘’free artist’’ he was often broke but spent his mornings composing, his afternoons in the cafes and his evenings were often spent at the homes of friends performing music. These evening became known as Schubertiads. A famous art song by Schubert. Erlking(1815) Based on a narrative verse by Goethe. Tells the story of the king of the elves and his malevolent seduction of a young boy. The legend said that whoever was touched by the king of the elves would die. This exemplifies the romantic fascination with the supernatural and the macabre.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
