Schubert the Wanderer

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

Schubert found such musical mileage in the concept of 'The Wanderer' that he reworked music from the song of that name within his 'Wanderer' Fantasy for piano. Images of alienation, rejection, despair and death often go hand in hand with the portrayal of rudderless peregrination. Today we ask what was Schubert looking for, and what did he find?

Continuing Radio 3's Spirit of Schubert season, Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's classical Breakfast Show.
