    I've just listened to this short section of video, elderpiano - it's interesting, and also thought-provoking.

    While I accept that Schubert showed an amazing maturity in his final works, and that he had shown that it was possible to move music in new directions after Beethoven, I still don't see how it was a 'myth' that Schubert hadn't achieved his maturity (or peak). After all, if you die at the age of 31 and are a genius like Schubert who knows what you might not have gone on to achieve.

    It does make me want to find out more about Schubert, though. Thanks for sharing.
