Released Monday, 16th June 2014
Good episode? Give it some love!
Franz Schubert was a man on a mission, distracted from composing music by neither the praise of Beethoven, nor the prospect of his own death. But the dude still had to pay the rent. Internationally acclaimed classical pianist, music teacher, and performer Clive Swansbourne explains what “impromptus” were, and how Schubert took them to the next level with the power of the pinky finger.
Audio production by Todd “Drop It Like It’s Todd” Hulslander with backup dancing by Dacia Clay.
