Composer: Franz Schubert

In the last years of his life, Schubert increasingly succeeded in finding publishers for his works. His Impromptus and Moments musicaux, for example, appeared in print in 1827 and 1828. Probably to pick up on the success of these editions, he wrote three further pieces (D. 946) in May 1828; though no less outstanding than their predecessors, they were not printed until Brahms' edition of 1868, which is perhaps one reason – a completely unjustifiable one – why they are still not very well known today.
