Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
He was an Austrian composer who was extremely productive during his short life.
He is considered one of the most important composers of the classical period
and a forerunner of Romanticism as through his work the next generations of
composers such as Frederic Chopin and many others were deeply influenced. He
composed piano works, symphonies, operas, chamber music works and of course the
great Lieder which were piano and voice works.
Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849)
Frederic Chopin was one of the most important representatives of Romantic
composers. His work was written exclusively for piano. His works deeply influenced
almost all the composers of his generation as well as the later composers. Nocturnes,
preludes, waltzes, mazurkas, studies, ballads, scherzos, polonaises, sonatas and 2
concerts for piano and orchestra are part of his works.
