For the last eight and a half days of March, BBC Radio 3 is devoting its entire schedule to playing nothing but Schubert. He wrote over 600 Lieder, nine symphonies, liturgical music, operas and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of Schubert's music during his lifetime was limited. In the 215th anniversary year of his birth, Schubert is seen as one of the leading exponents of the early Romantic era in music and remains one of the most frequently performed composers.
Aled Jones presents a very special edition of The Choir with the BBC Singers and the BBC Concert Orchestra live from Maida Vale.
