Schubert is one of the most loved and least understood of the great composers. This wise and searching book aims to provide the key to the man and to his music. The author loves his subject, has studied Schubert's life and works for many years and writes most evocatively. The book's freshness of perception will open the eyes of many who are familiar with Schubert only through a few well-known works. Although this is no srict biography, all the details of Schubert's tragically curtailed life are here; but Dr Gal's main concern is with the character of the composer and of his music. First, the music: for Schubert, Song was Alpha and Omega, and he poured forth an inexhaustible stream of rapt melody--poetry in sound. The profusion of melodic ideas is such that one gladly excuses his initial unwillingness to master instrumental, and indeed symphonic and contrapuntal, style. Dr Gal examines Schubert's relation to his contemporaries (particularly Beethoven) and lays stress on his creation of the lied and on his exclusively Viennese background. We are given insights into his method of work (everything was composed in great haste) and we see how he tackled the manifold problems of setting verse, and begin to sense the reasons which drove him to explore extreme tonal relationships and the symbolic potential of major and minor keys. Dr Gal pinpoints weaknesses in technique and approach, and examines the risks that seemed to be inherent in Schubert's character. He finds the large number of unfinished works significant. Schubert sometimes gave up too easily: new inspirations burst upon him so frequently that they crowded out time which might have been spent refining or wrestling with yesterday's ideas. Shy and modest, he also failed to "push" his own works when completed. In addition intense melancholy underlay a serene exterior: his words and letters failed to reveal to his friends depths of grief and profundity of thought which emerge only in his music--often side by side with passages of radiant sunshine: such was the complexity of the man. Schubert's music is loved by both performers and listeners. This book, with its deep understanding that sheds light on so much that is felt but not fully comprehended, will give immense pleasure, both for the memories it conjures in the mind of the reader, and in the knowledge and wisdom it imparts [Publisher description]
