The Double Life of Franz Schubert: An Exploration of His Life and Work

1997 NR

Director Peter Webber's dramatized exploration of the tumultuous life of Austrian composer Franz Schubert exposes the stark contradictions of the legendary artist, whose dark personal life was often veiled by his astonishing musical feats. Despite his many unseemly affairs, shameful transgressions and eventual hospitalization for syphilis, Schubert created some of the most melodic and mellifluous compositions known to man.
