This book is about the brilliant young Schubert, his merry friends, and their pranks and escapades. One interesting story in the book is the new light that is shed on the history of the Unfinished Symphony. There are many selections from the composer’s magnificent music in this volume. We have the March Militaire, the Moment Musicale, the theme of The Erlking, a dance from the opera, Rosamunde, Rondos, Dances, the lovely, lovely waltzes, impromptu pieces, the Cradle Song (a favorite of almost every child) and several of the beautiful songs.
This MP3 CD, 82 minutes in length, is read by Bonnie Parker. You can listen to the first chapter in the video below.
