Classical Music Playlist, July 20, 2022

Beethoven was a lifelong inspiration to Franz Schubert and when commissioned to write a work similar to Beethoven’s Septet, Schubert modeled his new music on his idol’s hugely popular composition 24 years earlier. Schubert designed the movements similarly and used the same instrumentation as Beethoven, except for the addition of a second violin, making the new work an octet. It was even premiered at the dedicatee of Beethoven’s Septet and with some of the same musicians. Franz Schubert’s Octet in F is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
