Antonio Salieri, the emperor's music director, heard about Schubert's talents and took him in as a student

Given to his friend Anselm Huttenbrenner, who kept the score hidden until 1865 Impacts Schubert could write music in almost any form, and mastered the art of lyrical beauty

His legendary melodies very likely influenced Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Hugo Wolf

"Ninth Symphony" paved the way for other great Austrian composers such as Anton Bruckner and Gustav Mahler, who also used his style of rich harmonies. The Trout Quintet, I.Allegro Vivace "Every night when I go to bed, I hope that I may never wake again, and every morning renews my grief." "There are eight girls in the house in which I am living, and practically all of them are good looking. You can realize that I am kept busy." Piano Quintet in A major, D.667
