Jedno pismo Franca Šuberta

Naočare Franca Šuberta

Naočare Franca Šuberta

To the publishers Breitkopf and Haertel in Leipzig

Vienna, 12th August 1826

Dear Sirs,

In the hope that my name is not wholly unknown to you, I am venturing to ask whether you would be disposed to take over at a moderate price some of my compositions, for I very much want to become as well known as possible in Germany. Your selection could be made from the following: – songs with pianoforte accompaniment, string quartets, piano forte sonatas, pieces for four hands, etc., etc., and I have also written an octet. Should you avail yourselves of this suggestion I should feel it a special honour to be associated with such an old-established and well-known publishing house.

Awaiting an early reply,

I remain, with the greatest respect,

Yours faithfully

Franz Schubert

My address: Auf der Wieden, No. 100, close to the Karlskirche, 5th staircase, 2nd floor.

Just like his famous symphony # 8, Schubert’s piano sonata # 8 is also unfinished.

It comes in a surprising key F-Sharp Minor and composed by the composer at age 20.

Following is the fragment left by composer from the first movement  titled „Allegro Moderato“ lasting around 7 to 8 minutes;

But why do you think Schubert abandoned the sonata and left the movement
unfinished? What might have prompted him to do so? *
