A detailed biography written for children, this story of the brilliant, young, and mischievous Franz Schubert is the perfect introduction to the young composer's life.
Learn how the "Unfinished Symphony" was left incomplete not because of any tragedy, but because his friends were starting for a picnic when he was in the middle of it; his pranks and escapades; and all about his beautiful music. Numerous selections are provided, including the March Militaire, the Moment Musicale, the theme of The Erlking, the Cradle Song and several more. Vintage pen-and-ink illustrations bring charm and whimsy to the text. 124 pages, softcover.
