Schubert the Wanderer

Sara Mohr-Pietsch with Schubert requests and dedications, Schubert Remixed and a Schubert Essay: Philip Dodd reflects on the paradoxes of snow in music, literature and life.

As part of Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents late night Schubert requests and dedications.

Write to her with your Schubert requests and dedications. Email: schubert@bbc.co.uk

Live in the studio across the week she'll also feature exclusive Schubert Remixed sessions, with contemporary artists from across the genres reinterpreting some of Schubert's great songs live in the studio.

Including at 11.30pm The Schubert Essay: Samuel Beckett listened again and again to 'Winterreise', 'shivering and shivering' on the journey; children love the snow, its malleability, its purity, its temporariness; the Chinese love winter and snow and Spring is not far behind. Night Waves' Philip Dodd reflects on the paradoxes on snow in music and literature and life, with Schubert as the point of departure and return.
