No other great composer left as many works for piano duet as Franz Schubert. Making music with others, often in a social circle, was a solid component of the Schubertian circle of friends. With the Fantasie in f minor D 940 op. post. 103, however, Schubert completely left the sphere of social gatherings and created, in the first months of his last year of life, a work of almost symphonic form, whose elegiac atmosphere at the beginning sets the tone for the entire work. Schubert was apparently aware of the significance of the work and prepared it for printing: the autograph already contained in his hand the opus number of the first edition published in March 1829.

About Franz Schubert

Franz Schubert gilt vielen Menschen als Inbegriff einer biedermeierlichen, beschaulichen Musikkultur. Seine berühmtesten Werke werden gern als Paradestücke für die Hausmusik des gehobenen Bürgertums angesehen. Doch das tradierte Bild des liebenswerten "Liederfürsten" verdient längst eine kritische Revision. Franz Schubert war eine höchst eigenwillige Persönlichkeit - und ein experimentierfreudiger, vielseitiger Künstler, in dessen Musik klassische Formprinzipien und romantische Ideen eine neue, unerhörte Synthese eingingen.
