  1. This work must come as a bit of a shock to anyone who thinks of Schubert just as an amiable composer of beautiful songs. Here the song themes are transfigured into something that is truly profound. I always remember an article about this work by William Mann (in the Pelican book ‘Chamber Music’), which he concluded by writing of its final notes: “…across C major, and across Schubert’s amiable …fingerprint, there has fallen the chill shadow of eternity”
